Asia’s largest CBG plant commences production

Asia’s largest compressed biogas (CBG) plant in Sangrur district of Punjab has now started commercial production, Aman Arora, State’s New and Renewable Energy Minister said. The minister said the plant with a total capacity of 33.23 tonne CBG per day was commissioned at village Bhuttal Kalan (Sangrur) in April this year. The plant has now started commercial production of CBG, which is being supplied to Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL) outlet.

Besides, PEDA (Punjab Energy Development Agency) has also allocated 42 additional CBG projects of total capacity 492.58 tonne per day (TPD) based on paddy straw and other agro-residue to develop a lasting and sustainable solution to prevent stubble burning while also strengthening the rural economy.

The minister said these projects are expected to fetch private investment of around Rs 1,200 crore, besides generating employment opportunities for 8,000 skilled and unskilled individuals.

With these projects, emission of greenhouse gases will also be reduced and the rural economy will get a boost by providing additional income to farmers from agro residue, he said.
