Uttar Pradesh Minister Yogi Adityanath has inaugurated the Compressed Biogas (CBG) Plant established by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) in Badaun district of Uttar Pradesh. Adityanath highlighted that the CBG plant, built at a cost of Rs 133 crore in Budaun, covers a sprawling 50-acre area.

Yogi Adityanath stated, “This CBG facility can produce 14.25 metric tons of biogas daily using 100 metric tons of paddy straw, alongside generating 65 metric tons of solid organic fertilizer daily. This initiative aims to reduce reliance on imported natural and crude oil, curb pollution, and align with climate change objectives. Additionally, the use of bio-fertilizers will improve soil carbon content.”

Emphasizing the multifaceted benefits, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stated that the CBG plant will not only aid environmental conservation but also enhance farmers’ income, addressing the significant issue of stubble burning.

During the inauguration at Sainjani village of Dataganj assembly constituency, he remarked, “Previously burned stubble will now become an additional revenue source for farmers, complemented by income from cow dung. The CBG plant will create job opportunities for farmers, cattle herders, and youth.”

Union Petroleum Minister Hardeep Singh Puri graced the event as the guest of honour. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath highlighted the CBG plant’s pivotal role in environmental protection, income augmentation for farmers, job creation for youth, and fostering new enterprises in economically challenged regions.

Yogi Adityanath also mentioned that similar CBG plants are being set up in eight districts across the state, including Jaunpur, Amethi, Sitapur, Fatehpur, Bahraich, Bareilly, Kannauj, and Budaun.

Moreover, the UP Chief Minister informed that the Ganga Expressway, set to be completed by the year’s end, will significantly reduce travel time, enabling journeys to Lucknow in 3 hours, Prayagraj in 4 hours, and Delhi in 3 hours, with a substantial portion traversing Budaun. He appreciated the roles of the companies involved in the construction of the CBG plants, acknowledging their valuable contributions.
