The Biomass Plantation or the Man Made High Density Regenerative Forest is the Back bone of EPPI's business concept. Since the entire concept revolves around this, it was necessary for EPPI to establish the biomass plantation first and get convinced that it is indeed possible to establish Man Made High Density Regenerative Forest.
The journey towards this began way back in 2002. With help from Universities and other Research Stations, EPPI identified one variety of Neem tree that grows fast and tall. It grows to a height of about 25 feet in three years, giving excellent biomass output even in adverse conditions. It is fundamentally a dry land crop and its botanical name is Melia Dubia. A trial plantation was established just on the outskirts of Bangalore city, based on this species.
