Delhi, February 20, 2018: Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL), the largest CNG distribution company of India, today entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mahindra Waste to Energy Solutions Limited (MWTESL), a subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., which will see them provide a solution to Waste Management & Stubble burning through design and development of bio-gas plants. These bio-gas plants will use agro and other organic waste in Delhi and other cities in the region where IGL operates. IGL currently supplies CNG and PNG to Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad and Rewari with plans to start operations in Gurugram and Karnal shortly.

The MoU was signed by Mr. V. Nagarajan, Director (Commercial), IGL and Mr. P. Palaniappan of Mahindra Waste to Energy Solutions Ltd. in the presence of Mr. E.S. Ranganathan, Managing Director, IGL and other senior officials of IGL and MWTESL.

Stubble burning not only affects soil fertility as it results in loss of essential nutrients but also affects human health. The project aims to convert paddy / wheat straw into bio-CNG. In addition to alleviating the ill effects of stubble burning on the environment, this project will also add to the income of the farmers in the region.
