India’s first plant to convert paddy straw into compressed biogas (CBG) is coming up at Gharaunda village in Karnal. The biogas generated at the Indraprastha Gas Limited’s plant will be used as CNG in vehicles and as piped cooking gas and help fight menace of stubble burning in fields.
The ground-breaking ceremony to begin construction of the plant was held on Friday in the presence of Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) managing director E S Ranganathan.
