Around 300 buses in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, will run on bio-CNG produced at a wet waste management plant in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore City.
The 550-tonne per day capacity plant will become functional soon.
“This is a first-of-its-kind plant in the country, which is based on the concept of earning from waste, and is a classic example of the circular economy,” Indore Municipal Corporation commissioner Pratibha Pal told reporters.
It is hoped that bio-CNG production will soon begin at the facility. Bio-CNG and a small quantity of compost manure will be produced daily with the 550 tonnes of wet waste.
The 300 buses will be introduced as part of a plan to improve connectivity in the City of Indore, with 19 new routes to be launched.
