Indraprastha Gas signed MoU to set up compressed biogas plants

The significant partnerships aim to produce 0.45 million metric standard cubic meters per day of biogas from waste equivalent to approximately 5% of industrial gas requirements. In addition, the company has already agreed with other collaborators to enhance comprehensive initiatives towards promoting clean and renewable energy. The mutual agreements are signed to align with the nation's commitment to green energy agendas.

The recommended CBG plant is a fundamental step towards a green energy initiative to process biogas derived from organic waste. This biogas is stimulated to undergo purification to eliminate Hydrogen Sulfide [H2S], Carbon dioxide [CO2], and water vapour resulting in compressed biogas [CBG] with a good enough content of methane gas over 90.4%.
