Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate Gobar-Dhan (Bio-CNG) Plant in Indore, Madhya Pradesh at 1 PM today through video conferencing. Mr Modi has recently launched the Swachh Bharat Mission Urban 2.0, with the overall vision of creating Garbage Free Cities.

The Mission is being implemented under the overarching principles of waste to wealth and circular economy for maximising resource recovery and both of which are exemplified in the Indore Bio-CNG plant.

The plant has a capacity to treat 550 tonnes per day of segregated wet organic waste. It is expected to produce around 17 thousand kilogram per day of CNG, and 100 tonnes per day of organic compost.

The plant is based on zero-landfill models, whereby no rejects would be generated. Additionally, the project is expected to yield multiple environmental benefits like reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, providing green energy along with organic compost as fertiliser.
