II.   Technology Demonstration Projects on Biogas Generation, Purification and Bottling (BGFP) under RDD&D Policy of MNRE

Under technology demonstration of new RDD&D Policy of MNRE during the year 2008-09, the Ministry took up a new initiative for bottling of biogas to demonstrate an Integrated Technology-package in entrepreneurial mode on medium size mixed feed biogas-fertilizer plants (BGFP) for generation, purification, bottling and piped distribution of biogas. Under the demonstration phase, the Ministry has sanctioned a Central Financial Assistance (CFA) upto 50% of the cost (excluding cost of land) for a limited number of such projects for implementation following an entrepreneurial mode on reimbursement basis. 14nos. BGFP projects with aggregate capacity of 23,116 cum/day have been sanctioned. The status of the biogas bottling projects are given below:
