Promoting the Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) initiative, Indian public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs) – Indian Oil Corp. Ltd, Bharat Petroleum Corp. Ltd and Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd – organised a roadshow on 16 December 2018 at Bhubaneswar, India.
The SATAT initiative aims to boost availability of more affordable transport fuels, better use of agricultural residue, cattle dung and municipal solid waste, and provide an additional source of revenue to farmers.
As part of SATAT, the OMCs invited Expressions of Interest (EOI) to procure compressed biogas (CBG) from potential entrepreneurs and make available CBG in the market for use as automotive fuel. Under the initiative, it is envisioned that 5000 CBG plants would be established across the country with an estimated CBG production of 15 million tpy by the year 2023.
