India is poised to utilize its huge biomass potential in the coming years. Biomass and organic waste sources like paddy straw, farm stubble, agricultural residue, cattle dung, sugarcane press mud, distillery spent wash, municipal solid waste, sewage treatment plants waste, offer huge potential for biogas production.SATAT initiative has the potential of addressing environmental problems arising from landfill emissions, farm stubble burning, and bringing down the dependency on oil imports. Until June 2019, Oil and Gas marketing companies have awarded 344 letters of intent (LoIs) to industry players for the production and supply of compressed biogas, informed Honourable Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Shri. Pradhan. Biofuels in India are of strategic importance as they help in tackling pollution levels and augur well with the government’s ongoing initiatives, such as Make in India, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, and Skill Development. Keeping this in mind, in May 2018, the central government cabinet approved the National Policy on Biofuels – 2018.
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. In this vein Diligentia proposes to focus on the challenges in the Bio Gas sector and how developments in this domain can help leap frog towards the objective. The Conference is been planned to bring out the various facets of Compressed Bio gas, its challenges, need of the hour and Road map as an alternative fuel for Transportation. 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.
