Hardeep Puri officially opened Asias largest compressed biogas plant

October 25, 2022

Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, has inaugurated Asia's largest Compressed Bio Gas (CBG) plant in Lehragaga, Sangrur, Punjab. The Sangrur plant is only the beginning of India's master plan for a CBG-based rural economy, and the government is doing everything possible to promote the ecosystem around it.
Verbio AG, one of Germany's leading bio-energy companies, commissioned the plant with a foreign direct investment of approximately Rs. 220 crores. The inaugural ceremony was also attended by Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and senior management from Verbio India Private Limited.

Concerning the advantages of the CBG plant:

The CBG plant in Sangrur covers an area of 20 acres. The plant's current output is around six tonnes per day, but it will soon process 300 tonnes of paddy straw per day to produce 33 TPD of compressed biogas using eight 10,000 cubic metre digesters.
The CBG plant represents a significant step toward achieving a win-win situation for farmers and the environment.
The plant will require 100,000 tonnes of paddy straw, which will be obtained from six to eight satellite locations within a 10-kilometer radius of the plant.
There will be a daily production of 600-650 tonnes of FOM (fermented organic manure) for organic farming. The CBG plant will also provide direct employment for 390 people and indirect employment for 585.
