Abstract: Due to intense fuel dependency on energy production in the world, cost of energy is now heavily depends on the prices of fossil fuels. Most of the countries in the world are suffering due to this and Sri Lanka is no exception. It is in this context promotion of biomass, as a renewable source, is so vital to the country. Rice being the staple food of the country as well as the crop with highest land area under cultivation, rice husk (RH) generated in paddy processing was found to have a significant potential in power generation. Paddy Husks the byproduct of Rice which represents approximately 25,000,000 GJ of raw energy content is however not currently harnessed for any useful purpose on a commercial scale. With the advancement of biomass energy technologies, realistically, a good percentage of this energy content could be harvested. In keeping with the above theme, the concept, design, implementation and operation of a 2.5 MW power plant was constructed in Nintavur of eastern coastal region and the power so generated is supplied to the national grid.Bio Energy Solution provides direct employment for over 100 no of locals and 150 individuals indirectly from the vicinity of Nintavur and is helping 120 no of Rice mills to dispose the paddy husks derived in the process of rice milling in an economical beneficial manner. But research area people are continuously opposing this plant because this plant emits pollutant into our air therefore there are occurring environmental pollution, ground water level decreasing and health impacts. According to this problem we have decided to do a research to identify the fact about this current issue. Our future power demand will be increase continuously so, we cannot stop these plant activities bio energy is the important needs but we can minimize environmental pollutants. So using Charcoal is a best way to infiltrate polluted air. And just send the emission smoke through a water tank so that soot content in smoke is strapped by the water and after a period of time water can be renewed in the tank. This kind of filtration is done in woodworking industries situated in residential areas.
