It will increase entrepreneurship, rural distribution and contracting and contribute an added source of wealth to producers. It will also help guide the nation’s climate reconstruction 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 Working Group on Biofuels, set up under the National Policy on Biofuels 2018, is in the process of finalizing a pan-India pricing model for Compressed Bio-Gas.

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