Default Tata Motors showcases India's first Bio-CNG Bus

Tata Motors has showcased the country's first Bio-CNG (bio-methane) bus at Urja Utsav - a Bio-energy program organized by the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas.

Tata Motors has developed new bio-methane engines for use in buses. The 5.7 SGI and 3.8 SGI bio-methane engines have been developed specifically for buses in the light, intermediate and medium class of commercial vehicles.

A Tata LPO 1613 powered by a BS IV-compliant 5.7 SGI was put on display at the event. Pune is among the first cities in the country to have adopted bio-methane powered buses. Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) currently has these eco-friendly buses in their fleet.

Head of Tata Motors' commercial vehicles business, Mr. Girish Wagh believes that bio-methane powered commercial vehicles could also be a viable option for city corporations for waste management duties.

Bio-methane is a product of bio-degradable materials. The gas produced by the decomposition of waste matter is used to power engines, thus reducing their impact on the environment.

If properly planned and implemented, it can solve two problems, that of waste management (at least bio-degradable) and less polluting fuel for urban transport.
