Anora said the plant - which has a total capacity of 33.23 tonne CBG per day - had started production of CBG, which it will supply to Indian Oil Corporation.

The publication further reported Anora as stating: “In addition to this, Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) has also allocated 42 additional CBG projects of a total capacity 492.58 tons per day (TPD) based on paddy straw and other agro-residue to develop a lasting and sustainable solution to prevent stubble-burning problem while also strengthening the rural economy.”

Anora said the projects were expected to attract private investment of around ₹1,200 crore (€149k), as well as generating 8,000 employment opportunities for skilled and unskilled workers.

“With these projects, emission of Green House gases will also be reduced and the rural economy will get a boost by providing additional income to farmers from the agro residue,” he added.

The minister also noted the huge potential for CBG projects based on agro-waste in the state of Punjab, as Hindustan Petroleum is setting up a project of capacity 100 KL 2G ethanol per day based on paddy straw and other agro-residue in the Bathinda district, which would be completed by February 2023. This project will consume about 2 lac tonne paddy straw annually.
