The Government of India’s 2018 Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) scheme to promote Compressed Biogas (CBG) as an affordable transport fuel, made from farm and municipal solid waste, is becoming more relevant as the soaring petrol and diesel prices are jeopardizing the economic revival of the country. There is broad recognition today that SATAT as a national development program will benefit vehicle users, farmers, and entrepreneurs alike. Since then, the thrust in this sector has gradually been increasing. Hon`ble Minister Dharmendra Pradhan emphasized in his address that what is considered as waste today can be transformed into energy in the near future! Every bit of biomass can be used to produce bio-gas and bio-manure. This will go a long way in making India energy self-reliant, help combat global warming and mitigate climate change. Going forward, Compressed Bio-Gas networks can be integrated with city gas distribution (CGD) networks to boost supplies to domestic and retail users in existing and upcoming markets. Besides retailing from OMC fuel stations, Compressed Bio-Gas can be injected into CGD pipelines for efficient distribution and optimized access of a cleaner and more affordable fuel.
Thus In order to address all the challenges and to discuss future technologies and opportunities in the sector, Diligentia is coming up with its 2nd Compressed Biogas Webinar 2021 to bring out the various facets of Compressed Bio gas, its challenges, need of the hour and CBG-Bio LNG as a future model. The industry experts will be sharing their experiences (Case studies) and approaches to ensure the effectiveness of CBG practices, especially when it comes to scaled-down operations.
