400 bio-CNG buses in Indore
Nearly 400 buses in Indore will soon run on Bio-CNG. Generated from byproducts at a plant that Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually inaugurated in Madhya Pradesh on February 19, the 15 acre plant of the Indore Municipal Corporation’s trenching ground in the Devguradia area is built with a Rs.150 crore investment. This is through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) route. According to the civic body, it is expected to be the largest
Bio-CNG plant in South Asia. The plant can produce 19,000 kg of Bio-CNG per day from 550-tonne, wet waste (from fruits, vegetables, raw meat, stale food, green leaves, and flowers), out of which the Bio-CNG buses will be fueled.
