Indore’s new bio-CNG plant, touted as one of Asia’s largest such facilities, is ready. It is expected to start operations within the next 15-20 days.

The plant will produce 18,000 kg of bio-CNG from 550 tonnes of liquid waste. This will be used to power Indore Municipal Corporation’s (IMC) transport buses and supply compost. Testing of machinery at the bio-CNG plant has been completed, reports Devdiscourse.

As reported earlier on SolidWasteIndia, the plant is located in Devguradia and reportedly built at cost of Rs 150 crore.

As per the agreement with the private partners – Environmental Infrastructure and Service Limited (IEISL) and a German company Proweps Envirotech GmbH – bio-CNG will be made available to the IMC at Rs 5 less than prevailing market rates for green gas.
