Indore, the cleanest city in the country, is now going to set an example not only for the country but for the whole of Asia. In fact, if all goes well, bio-CNG will now be made every day from the wet waste collected from door-to-door garbage collection in Indore. It is being told that the project to make bio-CNG gas from wet waste is the first project in the country. Under the Indore Clean Energy Project by Indo & Viro Solution Limited Company, about 18 thousand kg of Bio-CNG will be made from 550 tonnes of wet waste generated from the houses of the city every day.
This project costing 150 crores got delayed by 2 months due to Covid. This is the reason why machines coming from the UK, Denmark and Europe have come late. At present, work is going on on the project. According to Municipal Commissioner Pratibha Pal, there is no cost to the corporation in this unique project. Rather, the corporation will get a premium of about 1.5 crore rupees every year. He said that out of the 18,000 kg bio-CNG generated every day, half of the corporation's CNG would be used in passenger buses and half would be sold in the open market on a contract basis with the company.
Nitesh Tripathi, Project Head of Bio CNG said that in this project costing 150 crores, the company will provide Bio CNG to the Municipal Corporation at the rate of Rs 5 less than the market rate. For the time being, Indore is going to do something new once again, which will become an example not only for the country but for the entire Asia continent.
