Centre plans to set up 100 biogas plants

December 21, 2019
The Central government is planning to set up more than 100 biogas plants and provide thousands of farmers with machines to dispose of crop stubble.
The Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) will invite private companies to apply to set up 140 biogas plants that will use rice stubble as feed stock.

The plants will entail an investment of Rs 3,500 crore and each will require two tonne of crop residue every hour for at least 300 days to produce an optimum amount of compressed natural gas (CNG).

The government will earmark funds for the project that will make it attractive for farmers to sell their waste rather than burn it.
