Bio-CNG plant in Mahindra World City, Chennai is spread over an area of 1,000 square metres, the plant aims to create a carbon neutral ecosystem at Mahindra World City, Chennai. This plant was co-created by Mahindra Research Valley and Mahindra World City Developers Limited and was inaugurated by Shri. Piyush Goyal, the Honourable Minister of State (Independent Charge) - Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy, Government of India.
The Bio-CNG plant converts 8 tons of food and kitchen waste generated daily at MWC, into 1000m3 of raw biogas. Further the raw bio gas is enriched to yield 400kg/day of purified CNG grade fuel which is equivalent to a 200kW power plant. As a by-product 4 tons of organic fertilizer is produced per day. The green energy (bio CNG) is effectively used to replace CNG as automotive fuel and LPG for cooking purposes as well as to power street lights at MWC. The organic fertilizer is used by farmers to enhance soil fertility. Overall it creates an end to end carbon neutral ecosystem, wherein even the waste is utilized for the benefit of the farmers.
