This unit was being run on trial basis from the month of April itself. Now from Wednesday it will be run at full capacity. Established by Germany’s Verbio Company at a cost of Rs 230 crore, the first unit of this plant has a capacity of 33 tonnes of CBG per day. It will consume 300 tonnes per day and 1.30 lakh tonnes per annum.

Chief Minister Bhagwant claimed that two other units of the plant with a capacity of 14.25 tonnes CBG per day would also be completed by the year 2022-23. The plant, spread over an area of ​​20 acres, has a capacity to produce 550 tonnes of CBG per year, he added. He said that 10 more such bio-gas plants would be set up in Punjab if all the three units would start functioning properly.

Mann said that this plant will prove helpful in stubble management. When all the three units are commissioned in this plant, 16.50 lakh tonnes of stubble will be consumed annually. With this, where the problem of stubble will be solved, the means of employment will also be available. One thousand youth will get employment in this plant.
