Mandatory Blending of Biogas in India



What is the new mandate on biogas blending in India?

India’s government has mandated the blending of bio-gas with natural gas for use in PNG (Piped Natural Gas) and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) starting from FY26 to promote the use of biofuels.

What is the goal of the biogas blending obligation?

The goal is to stimulate investment in the bio-gas sector, reduce dependency on imported natural gas, and move towards achieving a circular economy.

How will the blending obligation unfold over the years?

It will begin with a 5% blending obligation from FY26, increasing to 10% by FY27, and progressively reaching 15% by FY30.

What is the expected environmental impact of this mandate?

The initiative aims to reduce carbon emissions, manage agricultural waste effectively, and support India’s goals for a greener economy.

How does this initiative align with India’s focus on maize and aviation fuel?

The blending initiative complements the government’s efforts to promote maize as a feedstock for ethanol production and the development of sustainable aviation fuels, reflecting a broader strategy for sustainable energy and agriculture.
