MoPNG (The Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas) signed a number of MOUs in November 2020 with oil and gas marketing companies to set up 900 compressed biogas plants in the country. India is looking to boost the availability of clean and affordable fuels in the country under their SATAT (Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation) initiative. India aims at setting up 5000 compressed biogas plants by 2023 and 24 and the production target will be about 15 million tones with an investment of 2 trillion Indian rupees.
The then petroleum minister, Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan said that LOIs (Letters of Intent) have already been given and based on the signed MOUs, the total count of possible biogas upgradation systems becomes 1500 at various locations in India. He also added that these plants will not only produce cleaner and greener fuels, but will also generate new employment opportunities in various parts of India. Although, the implementation has been slow owing to a number of reasons. These reasons include shortage of storage space, lack of availability of raw materials and lack of biomass pricing mechanism. However, the Indian government has always emphasized on the significance of biogas upgradation plants and seems pretty determined about their SATAT initiative from day one.
