Converting city food waste to environment friendly road transport for the city

A successful ongoing project "City Waste to City Bus" under a 'build – own – operate' model waste management plant has been setup in collaboration with the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) with a capacity to process over 1,25,000 tons of food waste a year from the Pune and convert it into 57,00 tons of CNG / year. The state-of-the-art processing plant is located 35 Km’s from Pune in Talegoan, is a odourless - noiseless operation with zero discharge using anaerobic digestion system producing CBG.

This CBG is used as a replacement to CNG in the city’s public buses that are run by the PMPML. Apart from providing a cleaner and more cost effective fuel to city buses, this plant has an additional benefit of producing over 25,000 tons of organic manure thereby replacing chemical fertilizers.
