Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday said there are plans to set up bio-Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) plants in India.
He made this comment after visiting a bio-CNG plant in Stuttgart, Germany, where he was briefed by officials on how agricultural waste can be converted into energy.
Pradhan told ANI, “Materials like straw and dung are considered waste in India. This can be used to produce energy. I had come to see a plant that uses similar materials to produce bio-CNG.
Such plants can be made in India. We are understanding the business model and technology. If it’s successful, we can set up bio-CNG plants in all villages of India.” Pradhan added that the Centre is working to ensure the doubling of farmers’ income by 2022. Read More
