The project aims to make fuel for automobiles by upgrading biogas, which is generated by fermenting cow dung, into biomethane (aka renewable natural gas – RNG).

Four biogas production plants will be built with the first scheduled to begin operations from 2025 in Banaskantha district in Gujarat.

The total investment of four plants is planned to be INR 2.3 billion (approximately JPY 4 billion or US$27.67 million).

Also, a bioCNG filling stand will be established alongside each plant, which will distribute fuel for NGV vehicles in which Maruti Suzuki holds over 70 percent market share in India.

Suzuki is tackling to reduce greenhouse gas in ways that suit the situations of each country and region. In India, there is an expectation for biogas which is said to have high reduction effects. We will contribute toward realizing carbon neutrality through making proactive initiatives in the biogas production business, said Toshihiro Suzuki, President and Representative Director of Suzuki Motor Corp.
