He said that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann led Punjab Government is committed to ensure optimal production and utilization of green energy.
Sharing his experiences after visiting the plant, Aman Arora said that this project could also be replicated in the cities, towns and major villages of Punjab. As the state has agriculture residue in abundance, this technology would be of great use not only for producing CBG and CNG but also producing organic fertilizer as a bi-product, which would reduce the use of chemical fertiliser, he added.
Aman Arora emphasized that volume of urban solid waste if not addressed adequately, the most of this waste would be end up in landfills causing major health and environmental issues. He said that Mann government has been paying due focus on framing policies, programmes and management strategies to find a sustainable solutions to meet this challenge.
