Mahindra inaugurates bio-CNG unit

PTI Chennai | Updated on January 19, 2018

Mahindra & Mahindra today inaugurated a bio-CNG facility here to create carbon neutral ecosystem at Mahindra World City (MWC).

Spread over 1,000 square metres, the facility will convert eight tonnes of food and kitchen waste generated daily at MWC, into 1,000m3 of raw biogas, Mahindra & Mahindra said in a statement.

Further the raw bio gas can be enriched to yield 400kg/day of purified CNG grade fuel which is equivalent to a 200 kW power plant, the statement said.

“As a by-product four tonnes of organic fertiliser will be produced per day. The green energy (bio CNG) can be effectively used to replace CNG as automotive fuel and LPG for cooking purposes as well as to power street lights at MWC,” it added.
