Mahindra & Mahindra company inaugurated a bio-CNG facility to create carbon neutral ecosystem in its World City. 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.
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. 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.
