Executive Summary :

Objective: The overall objective of the project is to prepare Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) for the production of bio-methane for CBG and Bio-PNG application with a targeted raw Bio-gas processing throughput of 5,000 Nm3/day and 12,500 Nm3/day raw Bio-gas.

Summary: This FTC proposal intends to cover DPR including detailed engineering and cost estimation for setting up a Bio-gas up-gradation plant at 5000 and 10000 Nm3/day raw Bio-gas throughputs for two end uses namely Bio-PNG as substitute of Petro-PNG and Compressed Bio-gas(CBG). The vendor database that will be built under this FTC will enable IIP to design a commercial scale Bio-gas up gradation plant for future projects for translation of the technology to prospective clients.
