New Delhi, Jul 17 (UNI) Vehicles maker Tata Motors showcased a class-leading technology innovation- country’s first Bio-CNG or bio-methane Bus at the Bio-energy programme, called ‘Urja Utsav’. The manufacturer has designed and developed bio-methane engines (5.7 SGI & 3.8 SGI) for LCV, ICV & MCV buses. Girish Wagh, Head, Commercial Vehicles Business, Tata Motors, “Tata Motors has been at the fore front in pioneering latest technologies and providing smart city solutions in the commercial vehicle industry. We are delighted to present yet another product with innovation in alternate fuel technologies, to cater to the need for a greener country.

Bio-methane is produced out of bio-degradable materials like kitchen waste. This gas, which gets produced out of natural degradation process, escapes into the atmosphere unused. However, if this is trapped and used in engines, it reduces the net impact on environment and at the same time produces useful power.” The event was organised by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas.
