Praj Industries to provide CBG technology for HPCL project

Praj Industries has received a ‘breakthrough’ order from Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) to set up a compressed biogas (CBG) project in Uttar Pradesh, India.

The project, using Praj’s unique RenGas™ technology, will be able to process 35,000 MT of rice straw as a feedstock to generate 5,250 MT of CBG annually. Additionally, the project will generate 23,000 MT high-quality, solid bio-manure and 350,000 MT of liquid bio-manure for ferti-irrigation. It also has the potential to save up to 15,000 MT of CO2 emissions per year.

Shishir Joshipura, CEO and managing director of Praj, said: “We are delighted to partner with HPCL for the CBG project at Badaun UP, which will deploy RenGas technology – an integral part of our Bio-Mobility platform.

“This project is a definitive solution to meet the challenge of air pollution-related to stubble burning while simultaneously enabling sustainable decarbonisation. This project will facilitate India’s pursuit of energy security and is also a definitive step towards Atmanirbhar Bharat [self-sufficient India].

“We are already executing for HPCL an advanced biofuels project at Bhatinda Panjab, based on our enfinity 2G technology that uses rice straw as feedstock to produce ethanol. We look forward to continuing strengthening our association with HPCL in future.”

The project will be completed within 12 months.
