Biogas for niche urban demand
The New and Renewable Energy Ministry is implementing a scheme “Programme on Energy from Urban, Industrial and Agricultural Wastes/Residues” with Central Financial Assistance in the form of back-ended subsidy for developers to set up such projects.
This was announced by Minister of State for New and Renewable Energy R.K. Singh in parliament on 21 Nov 2019.
The scheme is for setting up of waste-to-energy plants to recover energy in the form of Biogas or BioCNG or Power from Urban, Industrial and Agricultural Waste/Residues for meeting certain niche energy demands of urban, industrial and commercial sectors in the country.
So far 199 waste-to-energy projects for generation of Biogas/BioCNG/Power based on Urban, industrial, agricultural waste and Municipal Solid Waste have been successfully established in the country.
A total capacity of 56.34 MW has been set up for power generation from waste garbage/material during last three years and current year in the country, he said. fiinews.com
