Our Challenge

Waste management, especially in the developing world, is a growing challenge. In Asia alone, urban areas produce approximately 760,000 tons of municipal solid waste.

In 2025, this figure will increase to 1.8 million tons of waste per day. In addition, experts have recognized fossil-fuel-based energy as unsustainable.

The concern over high fossil fuel prices, depletion of natural resources and climate change has led to a resounding call for efficient renewable energy sources and technologies.

These challenges are magnified in our rural areas. Access to energy, especially low-cost energy, is difficult, and economically and environmentally beneficial waste management practices for the hundreds of thousands of tons of agricultural waste produced from today’s agricultural practices is nearly non-existent.

Company Mission
Spectrum Renewable Energy Private Limited (SREL) is dedicated to the development of innovative biogas projects in rural markets that capture renewable energy from organic waste products, while increasing agricultural profitability and sustainability through environmentally responsible practices. We strongly believe that the local production of renewable energy will significantly benefit rural communities by providing access to energy for the millions currently relying on either expensive fossil fuels or traditional biomass for cooking, lighting, industrial and transportation needs. Renewable energy production for local use translates into greater social benefits, including improvement of rural livelihoods and support of local industries.

Since 1984 Captain Sindhu has been active in the field of coal mining, logistics, coal washing, thermal power, media, education and finance. Over a span of  about three decades he excelled in building efficient business management systems, cost effective and efficient state of art equipment, skills and highly motivated teams  in the field of coal mining , coal washing, coal reject based power plants and mining logistics. On February 15,2016 he was awarded the  “2016 Global Excellence Award in Coal Sector” by Energy and Environment Foundation for his vision, leadership and outstanding contribution and for demonstrating excellence in the Coal Sector.

Group has business interests in number of companies engaged mainly in mining & logistics, coal beneficiation, power generation, sponge iron & steel, stock broking, media, finance and tourism.

He chaired the Expert Committee on Coal since 2008 and has been the Co-Chairman of the National Coal Committee of ASSOCHAM since 2009.

Capt. Sindhu has been interested in Vedic literature and believes that hard work, sincerity of purpose, technology and team work can solve any problem. His commitments to protecting the environment, the eco systems, soil health and bringing back the social, cultural and economic vibrancy of the ancient village life has led him to support various charitable and initially unviable pilot  technology start ups that aim at addressing these issues. Accordingly he is associated with a number of Trusts, Societies and social initiatives in different roles and capacities. After Gujarat earthquake he conceptualized a smart model village to rehabilitate the earthquake victims . It was constructed in record time of 90 days and inaugurated by the then Prime Minister, Sh. Atal Bihari Vajpayee.  

He has helped in setting up schools and Gurukuls, including charitable ones, in rural areas, tribal areas, and urban slums.  

Currently Mr Sindhu is nourishing a dream to create local solutions for the problems of unemployment, unhygienic living conditions, poor soil health, poor quality of food by appropriate tweaking of technology for value addition and use of  biogas and bio slurry. These are two  products that are generated when a gobar gas plant anaerobically  digests the local rural resources of cattle dung and agro waste. It may be mentioned that rotting of the organic waste is biggest headache of the Swatch Bharat Mission. Deployment and popularization of this process shall help the mission tremendously. The beginning has been made by investing in the Spectrum Renewable Energy Pvt. Ltd. The objective is to create a high tech model plant where the capex and apex are low and all the end products namely methane, Co2, H2S and bio slurry are value added to create local sources of energy and manuring  systems for rejuvenating the soil health by adding organic carbon, necessary microbes and micro nutrients.
