EverEnviro’s Indore CBG plant achieves full-capacity operations milestone

Largest MSW-based CBG facility in India transforms waste into energy, driving environmental sustainability.

EverEnviro Resource Management, a leading Compressed Biogas (CBG) developer in India, has achieved a significant milestone with its Indore Clean Energy Project becoming the first CBG project in India to reach full operational capacity. Inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2022, the CBG facility in Indore is the largest MSW-based CBG facility in India.

The project has played a pivotal role in establishing Indore as the cleanest city in India. Operating through a Public-Private Partnership with the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC), the plant serves as a cornerstone in the city’s environmental strategy. It significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution while providing a renewable energy source for both residential and commercial sectors in Indore.

In recent months, the facility has maintained a consistent production rate of nearly 15 tonnes per day (TPD) of compressed biogas (CBG). It reached a milestone with its highest single-day CBG production of 18 tonnes in March 2024. Transforming a site that previously held 200,000 metric tonnes (MT) of waste, it now processes 550 MT of organic waste each day. This daily treatment of segregated organic material has significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, cutting up to 70,000 metric tonnes of CO2 equivalent (tCO2eq), thereby improving the environmental quality for the region’s 4.3 million inhabitants. The plant can generate 17 tonnes of biofuel and 40 MT of organic fertiliser daily. Over the next two decades, it is expected to prevent the accumulation of over 4 million tonnes of waste. The integration of CBG into Avantika Gas Limited’s (AGL) network in Indore has enabled a shift to eco-friendly fuel for roughly 15,000 households. Additionally, EverEnviro’s CBG output now powers the city buses managed by the Indore Municipal Corporation, marking a significant step toward greener public transport options.

Commenting on the milestone, Mahesh Girdhar, MD and CEO of EverEnviro, said, “EverEnviro remains committed to pushing the boundaries of sustainable energy production. We take pride in setting new standards for efficiency, investing in global resources and innovation, and establishing a value proposition for the industry. The impact of this CBG plant extends beyond Indore, contributing to both the community and the nation at large.”

KA Chowdary, Chief Project and Operations Head at EverEnviro Resource Management Pvt Ltd, also commented on the milestone, “Stabilising this pioneering facility in India was initially challenging for our team. During the initial testing phase, significant investments were made in technologies and machinery to effectively manage source-segregated waste, the most suitable input for the plant. We are proud to announce that, through continuous learning and effort, we have successfully reached nearly 100 percent operational capacity.”

The CG plant has rapidly become a learning destination for those interested in compressed biogas development and the conversion of waste into valuable resources. The plant has hosted a diverse group of visitors, including representatives from Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) from across India, as well as students, scholars, researchers, and dignitaries from around the world. Notable guests include figures such as the British High Commissioner and mayors from neighbouring countries, all keen to study this successful model of energy innovation and sustainable development.

This ground-breaking facility marks a significant step towards achieving renewable energy goals and supports the Swachh Bharat Mission Urban, aiming to create ‘Garbage Free Cities’ and extend its impact beyond Indore.
