Karnataka: Shri Dharmendra Pradhan Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Steel laid the foundation stone of Leafiniti Bioenergy’s press mud-based compressed bio-gas plant at Jamkhandi in Karnataka through video conference. The plant will produce CBG from sugarcane press-mud and pave the way for the creation of a circular economy in the biofuel value chain.
