The Karnataka government has given the green signal to GAIL Gas Limited (CGL) to build a compressed biogas (CBG) plant on an 18-acre BBMP plot of land in Mandur on the outskirts of Bengaluru.

GAIL is expected to install and operate the facility at no charge while the BBMP will supply 300 tonnes of wet waste daily. The plant will be built over an 18-acre plot and is expected to generate 10.7 tonnes of bioCNG, around 31.39 MT of manure and 180 m3 of fermented liquid manure daily, reports Deccan Herald.

The project cost is estimated at Rs 65.11 crores and will receive a subsidy from the central government’s WtE program.
