Reliance to set up 100 CBG plants in 5 years

At a recent annual stakeholders’ gathering, Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries Ltd, which boasts the world’s most expansive singular oil refining facility, announced plans to establish 100 plants focused on converting agricultural waste into gas. Ambani highlighted that following the successful demonstration of two pilot compressed biogas (CBG) units in Jamnagar, the company launched its inaugural full-scale CBG facility in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh, in an impressive span of only 10 months.

He elaborated “We will rapidly scale this up to 25 CBG plants across India. Our target is to establish 100 CBG plants in the next 5 years, consuming 5.5 million tonnes of agro-residue and organic waste, thereby mitigating nearly 2 million tonnes of carbon emissions, and producing 2.5 million tonnes of organic manure annually.” Furthermore, Ambani pointed out that such advancements will curtail India’s reliance on imported LNG by approximately 7 million tonnes annually.
