GHMC and HAL collaborate to establish 20 ton biogas plant in Kukatpally

With the help of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Balanagar, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation will set up a 20-ton biogas plant at Kaithalapur Transfer Station to convert organic waste into Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has sponsored the project under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). According to the proposal, the company will invest Rs 4 crore to set up the plant, of which Rs 3 crore will be released in 2022-23, and Rs 1 crore will be released in 2023-24.

A budget of Rs 4 crore was reported to be approved by HAL management after examining the proposal. In addition, it agreed in principle to allocate Rs 3 crore this year and the balance funds in 2023-24, based on the progress of the project.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is funding the project through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and through this proposal, the company will fund the project to set up the plant.

“Khaitlapur Transfer Station, which produces 200-300 metric tons of biowaste daily, has been considered a feasible site for installing this plant. GHMC’s Standing committee will soon consider the proposal to set up this plant,” said a GHMC official.

HAL has also submitted a draft MoU to the GHMC asking that the CNG produced at the plant be distributed free of charge to the Swachh autos and the manure collected post-generation of bio-CNG to be used at nurseries and distributed free of charge to farmers to promote social forestry agriculture.

In a statement to Express, GHMC officials had said the matter has been referred to the GHMC Standing Committee for approval for receiving funds from the HAL, Balanagar, for the execution of works. Once the Standing Committee approves the request, tenders will be invited.
