About Sustainable Alternative towards Affordable Transportation 'SATAT' initiative: Details, Aim, Significance, Highlights

The Sustainable Alternative towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) initiative was launched by Union Petroleum Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan on 1st October 2018 to promote compressed biogas as alternative fuel for automobiles.

The Sustainable Alternative towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) initiative main aim is to provide a sustainable alternative for affordable transportation as a developmental effort that would benefit vehicle-users as well as farmers and entrepreneurs.

The SATAT initiative is believed to boost the availability of more affordable transport fuels and enable better use of agricultural residue, cattle dung, and municipal solid waste.

The SATAT initiative is expected to pave the way for efficient municipal solid waste management and help in tackling the problem of polluted urban air due to farm stubble-burning and carbon emissions.

The SATAT initiative move will boost entrepreneurship, rural economy and employment and provide an additional source of revenue to farmers.

The SATAT initiative will also help achieve the nation’s climate change goals and bring down the dependency on natural gas and crude oil imports and act as a buffer against crude oil and gas price fluctuations

The Compressed Bio-Gas networks can be integrated with city gas distribution (CGD) networks to boost supplies to domestic and retail users in existing and upcoming markets. 

Moreover, retailing from OMC fuel stations, Compressed Bio-Gas can at a later date be injected into CGD pipelines too for efficient distribution and optimised access of a cleaner and more affordable fuel.
