Nepal’s First Biogas Plant Starts Producing CNG

Nepal’s first-ever biogas plant commercially producing bottled compressed natural gas (CNG) has begun operations. The CNG can be used as an alternative to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)—popularly known as cooking gas. The biogas will be purified and converted into CNG before being bottled. The biogas is formed when organic materials decay over time. The plant will utilise cow dung, pressmud, poultry litter and biomass. The plant is located at Sukrauli, Nawalparasi. Read more.
