An automatic compressed biogas (CBG) facility, the first in Noida, will be built in Sector 123 to dispose of 200 metric tonnes of wet waste daily. The factory, which will be developed in a public-private partnership (PPP) model for Rs 200 crore, will produce 8,000kg of CBG and 50 tonnes of organic manure each day.
The CBG produced can also be utilized as a fuel in gas-powered vehicles. Around 10 acres of land in Sector 123 has been identified for the operation of this factory. The project will cost around Rs 200 crore, a Noida Authority official informed The Times of India.
Private companies have been invited to submit bids, and have until April 7 to develop a strategy for scientific solid waste processing and disposal at the plant. The Authority plans to give the land for the plant on a long-term lease of 25-30 years.
