Biogas Plants in India: List, Status and Commercial Production Capacity

Biogas in India is being produced using degradable organic waste like cattle dung (gobar), poultry waste, kitchen waste etc as raw material. The waste generated  is also used as bio-fertilizer.

The compressed biogas can be used as substitute not only for LPG but also for electricity generation, transportation, etc. Bio-fertilizer increases the natural fertility of the soil with its high macro & micro nutrients content and also give benefits to the farmers with its easy to applied application.

A list of commercial Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in India is given below:

 List of Commercial Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in India

Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in Maharashtra

-‘Green Elephant’ a German Company, under Indo-German Development Partnership has set up commercial bio gas production plant in Satara (Maharashtra). It has capacity to generate 25,000 cubic meter biogas per day from 600 cubic metres of sugar waste. 80 percent of the gas generated from the plant is upgraded to compressed biogas (CBG) which is an clean alternative fuel to CNG, diesel and petrol.

-A biogas bottling project of 500 m3/day capacity was commissioned in 2011 at Village Talwade, District Nashik in Maharashtra. It was built by Ashoka Biogreen Pvt. Ltd.  The plant was supported by Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and is based on NISARGRUNA Technology developed by Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC). The purity of the biogas produced from this plant is estimated to be about 98%. The biogas is compressed to 150-bar pressure for filling in cylinders.

Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in Gujrat

A biogas plant of 5,000 cubic meter per day capacity became operational in 2015 in Sundarpur village of Umreth taluka in Anand district of Gujrat. The capacity of the plant can be expanded upto 10,000 cubic meters.

Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in Tamilnadu

In Chennai and Tuticorin cities of Tamilnadu at least 5 biogas plants are under construction. All these plants are based on the Nisargruna technology of BARC for biomethanation of waste into biogas.

Four of the plants have a capacity to process 3 tonnes of waste per day while one plant in Tuticorin has 1 ton per day processing capacity. These plants are capable of producing 100 kg of manure and 100 units of electricity or methane fuel gas to fill two to three 14.6 kg cylinders per tonne of biowaste processed.

Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in kerala

According to the news published in Indian Express on 2 September 2013, a biogas plants became fully operational at Palayam, Thiruvananthapuram. the production capacity of the plant is two tonnes of waste per day and it is able to produce 30 kilowatts of electricity.

The total cost for setting up of the plant was estimated to be Rs 30 lakh.  The plant is able to process the leftovers from the fish and vegetable market along with the household wastes of approximately 1,500 residences.

Gobar Gas and Biogas Plants in Andhra Pradesh

Union Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources, through the New and Renewable Energy Development Corporation of Andhra Pradesh (NREDCAP) offered 40% subsidy to Healthy Farm Products Ltd, a dairy farm project.

Karnataka to get $50 million dollars for biofuel

In India the Karnataka States’ Biofuel Development Programme  is set to get a boost in the form of  $50 million dollars from International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD). The loan can be utilized in various activities such as plantation of biofuel crops and production. Biofuel Development Board of Karnataka has been active in promoting biofuels and  has established biofuel information and demonstration centres with about 100 l per day capacity in each district. These centres are being scaled up to 150-200 l capacity. The Board also owns a 500 litre biodiesel production plant at Hatti Gold Mines. The loan conditions include 1% interest with a 50-year repayment period.

China’s first commercial flight powered with biofuel was successfully completed

China's first commercial flight powered with biofuel was successfully completed between Shanghai and Beijing. The privately owned Hainan Airlines flight used biofuel made up from used cooking oil collected from the restaurants. The biofuel was supplied by China National Aviation fuel company and energy giant Sinopec. It was a Boeing 737 plane which used 50% biofuel blended in conventional jet fuel and carried more than 100 passengers to their destination.

India achieved only 1.4% ethanol blending this fiscal year

Problems between sugar mill owners and oil marketing companies have resulted in only 1.4% ethanol blending through february this fiscal year which is way less than the blending target of 5% and lesser than the last year's achieved blending level of 2%.The National Policy on Biofuels of India identifies the sugar cane molasses as the feedstock suitable under Indian conditions for ethanol production for blending purpose and that makes the sugarcane mills as the biggest suppliers of bioethanol. The high state-level levies on the biofuel and the requirement of obtaining permits from authorities have been sited as the major impediments for producing bioethanol by Sugar Mills. The government has set the selling price of ethanol for sugar mills @  Rs. 48.50/litre  if the depo of the oil marketing company is within 100 km from distillery and  @49.50/ litre  if the depo is beyond 300 km. The producers claim that the long distance transportation also reduces their margin. India needs approximately 115 crore litres of ethanol to meet the 5% target. Read more at
