Suzuki Motor Corporation (Suzuki) has concluded a three-party agreement to set up four biogas production plants in India.
The agreement is between Suzuki R&D Center India Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Suzuki in India; National Dairy Development Board (NDDB); and Banas Dairy, one of the largest dairy manufacturers in Asia.
Suzuki signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NDDB and Banas Dairy in December 2022 to begin a biogas demonstration project.
The project aimed to produce fuel for automobiles by refining methane from biogas.
Four biogas production plants will commence operation from 2025 in the Banaskantha district in Gujarat.
The total investment of four plants is planned to be INR 2.3 billion (approximately €25.2 million).
A biogas filling stand will be established alongside each plant. Each one will distribute fuel for CNG vehicles, in which Maruti Suzuki holds over 70% market share in India.
A contract conclusion ceremony was held today (6 September) at the Embassy of India in Japan. Banas Dairy's chairman Chaudhry, NDDB's chairman and managing director Shah and Suzuki's president Suzuki were in attendance. The Ambassador of India to Japan, Sibi George, was also present.
President Suzuki said: “Suzuki is [reducing] greenhouse gas in ways that suit the situations of each country and region. In India, there is expectation for biogas, which is said to have high reduction effects. We will contribute toward realising carbon neutrality through making proactive initiatives in the biogas production business.”
