Witnessed the launch of India’s first-ever CNG-powered tractor by Union Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari
A game changing innovation, economical and environment-friendly CNG-driven tractors will significantly lower the fuel and maintenance cost borne by farmers.
This will help improve livelihoods of farmers and also create job opportunities in rural India.
Agricultural residue is used as a feedstock to produce bio-CNG. Tractors driven on CNG will significantly reduce pollution and also help in boosting income of farmers as they will further be encouraged to sell their agricultural residue to bio-CNG units near them.
This breakthrough technology will compliment the efforts of converting waste-to-wealth, improving well-being and prosperity of farmers and building an Aatmanirbhar Bharat.
India under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi ji is taking efforts to create low-carbon pathways in the energy transition.
We are creating a new alternative energy model with thrust on renewables & bio-energy. Our green energy portfolio will fulfil our future energy demand.
