Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), India's biggest city gas operator, is planning to set up as many as 19 compressed biogas plants in four states as part of its efforts to expand business beyond natural gas and embrace cleaner forms of energy.
During India Energy Week 2024, the firm signed Memorandum of Understandings (MoU) with two technology partners to set up compressed biogas plants in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
The MoUs were signed in the presence of K K Chatiwal, managing director of IGL, Pawan Kumar, director (commercial) of IGL and other officials.
Gas produced from municipal and agri-waste will be mixed or blended in conventional gas and sold as CNG to automobiles and piped gas for cooking and industrial purposes.
IGL said it has empanelled two other partners for the same purpose, and that the biogas produced from the 19 plants will be fed into IGL's gas distribution network.
"This partnership aims to produce 0.45 million standard cubic meters per day of biogas from waste, equivalent to approximately 5% of IGL's daily requirements," added IGL.
