Odisha to have compressed bio gas plants
For turning the waste into energy, plants will be set up in the state to produce compressed bio gas (CBG) for commercial and household use. The plants come under Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATA) initiative of the Union ministry of petroleum and natural gas. A CBG plant is established to be an investment of Rs 20 crore. Agricultural residue, cattle dung, and municipal solid waste can be used as raw material for the plant and it will produce around 7 tonne of gas per day. The gas will be marketed through petrol pumps run by oil marketing companies (OMCs) like compressed natural gas (CNGs).
