Abellon CleanEnergy Limited has announced that it has entered into a pact with Germany’s Agraferm Group for setting up biogas plants pan India. Under this strategic technical tie-up, Abellon will set up multiple Biogas plants in Gujarat in the initial phase, with technical support from Agraferm GmbH.
The Biogas plants will be developed using different sets of feedstock including animal waste, food & kitchen waste, garden waste and agricultural residues or process residues available in locations around the proposed projects. In phase 2, both companies would endeavour to implement Biogas projects on pan-India basis.
Commenting on this development, Aditya Handa, MD& CEO, Abellon CleanEnergy Limited said, “Since its inception, Abellon has been exploring all aspects of the bio-refinery value chain, with a view to contribute to sustainable energy generation in the country. The announcement of SATAT (Sustainable Alternative towards Affordable Transportation), and national goal to set up 5000 Biogas plants across India, gives us the opportunity to participate in this segment. We are happy to have Agraferm as our strategic technical partner and I believe our complementing strengths will enable us to set up world class Biogas plants uniquely tailored to the Indian context.”
Eike Liekweg, MD, Agraferm GmbH said, “Agraferm has a substantial track record of setting up Biogas projects in Europe. We are very excited to be in India and explore the opportunity to contribute to the country’s Biogas mission in partnership with Abellon – a company that is recognized as a pioneer in the Bioenergy sector in India. We look forward to doing great work together.”
