Centre asks states to set up biogas plants to provide clean fuel

The Centre has asked states to set up one lakh small biogas plants this year in a bid to provide clean fuel for cooking. The move is expected to result in a saving of 21.9 lakh LPG cylinders, according to an official statement. “With an objective to provide clean gaseous fuel for cooking and organic bio-manure as a by-product, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has allocated to the States/UTs an annual target of setting up one lakh family size biogas plants for the current year, 2016-17,” according to the statement.
