Reliance becomes the country’s largest producer of fuel from straw – Dainik Savera Times


New Delhi : Reliance, which forayed into bio-energy just a year ago, has become the country’s largest producer of fuel from stubble. The company has set up its first Compressed Biogas (CBG) plant at Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh. For this, Reliance has indigenously developed Compressed Biogas (CBG) technology. This technology was developed at Reliance’s Jamnagar refinery, the world’s largest refinery. This information was given by the company’s chairman Mukesh Ambani in the 46th Annual General Meeting of Reliance.

Giving details of the Compressed Biogas (CBG) plant at the Annual General Meeting, Mukesh Ambani said, “We have set up a plant in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh in a record 10 months, we will rapidly set up 25 more plants across India. We aim to set up more than 100 plants in the next 5 years. 55 lakh tonnes of agro-residue and organic waste will be consumed in these plants. Due to which about 20 lakh tonnes of carbon emissions will be reduced and 25 lakh tonnes of organic manure will be produced annually.

Let us tell that about 230 million tonnes of non-cattle biomass (straw) is produced in India and most of it is burnt. Due to which air pollution increases rapidly. Many Indian cities, including the capital Delhi, are exposed to severe air pollution during winters due to stubble burning. This initiative of Reliance is expected to reduce air pollution significantly.

Reliance is also ready to try its hand in the field of wind energy. By mass-producing the carbon fiber used to make the blades of windmills, the company wants to keep the cost of these blades low. For this, Reliance is joining hands with specialist companies around the world. Reliance aims to generate at least 100 GW of renewable energy by 2030.
