Indraprastha Gas Ltd plans to set up 19 compressed biogas plants

Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL) plans to set up 19 plants to produce compressed biogas (CBG) that would feed into its city gas distribution network, the company said in a statement.

IGL signed preliminary agreements with two technology partners on Wednesday for setting up compressed biogas plants in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh. This partnership aims to produce 0.45 million metric standard cubic meters per day of biogas from waste, equivalent to approximately 5% of IGL’s daily gas requirements, the company said.

The biogas projects will help municipal authorities get rid of municipal waste while helping farmers dispose of agricultural waste, it said. Compressed biogas comes cheap and when blended with natural gas reduces the overall cost of supplies for city gas distributors.
