Reliance Industries to establish 50 compressed biogas plants, Rs 5,000 Crore allocated

Reliance Industries (RIL) is embarking on an ambitious initiative to establish more than 50 compressed biogas (CBG) plants within the next two years, with a projected expenditure exceeding Rs 5,000 crore. These plants will diversify CBG utilisation across automotive, industrial, and commercial sectors.

RIL has initiated the tendering process for 50 CBG plants, with plans to issue tenders for additional units soon, revising the total count to 106. Each plant is designed to process 250–500 tonne per day (tpd) of feedstock, yielding CBG output ranging from 10 to 20 tonne per day. RIL’s dedicated team will oversee feedstock procurement, engaging with various sugar mills for sugarcane press mud and feedstock to support CBG production.

The company has already operationalized two CBG demo units at its Jamnagar refinery in Gujarat and commissioned the first commercial-scale CBG plant in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh. Through these ventures, RIL aims to utilise 5.5 million tonnes of agro-residue and organic waste, mitigating nearly two million tons of carbon emissions annually while generating 2.5 million tons of organic manure. Additionally, it anticipates reducing imported LNG by approximately 0.7 million tonne per year. These CBG facilities will also facilitate the expansion of CBG and bio-CNG retailing at Jio-BP fuel outlets.

Jio-BP outlets are established through Reliance BP Mobility, a joint venture between RIL and British energy major BP. This strategic endeavour underscores the company’s commitment to sustainable energy practices and its collaborative efforts to advance the adoption of cleaner fuel alternatives.
