Ramky Enviro has inaugurated a new biogas plant at the Hyderabad Integrated Municipal Solid Waste (HiMSW) site. The project is focused on conversion of landfill gas into compressed biogas as an automotive fuel.

The plant converts 600 Nm3 of landfill gas per hour to CBG, in line with the IS 16087:2010 requirements. The compressed biogas will be sold to Bhagyanagar Gas Limited through its retail outlets in Hyderabad.

According to a press release issued by Ramky, this is one of the world’s largest plants of its kind. Speaking on the inauguration, Masood Mallick, JMD, Ramky Enviro said, ” The successful transformation of one of the largest municipal waste dumpsites in India to a significant source of sustainable energy and green auto fuel, is a great example of circular economy innovation at scale, one that is unprecedented globally.” 

HiMSW undertook to purify and convert the captured gas from a capped landfill into compressed biogas for use as a clean fuel in automobiles under the Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) scheme launched by the Government of India in 2018.

The plant has been recognised and awarded as the Most Innovative Environmental Project in 2021 by CII GreenCo National Award for Environmental Best Practices
