Sistema.bio biodigesters have now been accredited by the National Biogas Programme, which was recently launched in Delhi to promote the use of biogas as a clean cooking fuel that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and provides organic fertiliser for agriculture. Sistema.bio has already installed 30,000 biogas plants in India and plans to instal an additional 40,000 by the end of 2023.


In addition to the major impacts of biogas plants, this move will benefit millions of dairy farmers in India by providing access to sanitation, empowering women, and creating rural employment.

The certification was granted to Sistema.bio following a rigorous field performance evaluation of the biogas plants conducted by Sardar Swaran Singh National Institute of Bioenergy (SSS-NIBE), Kapurthala in accordance with the parameters recommended by the MNRE, Govt of India's New Biogas Projects Experts Appraisal Committee (NBPEAC).

Sistema.bio provides a prefabricated-modular biogas plant with a full suite of appliances. In the coming decades, its modern biogas plant design will provide a wide range of benefits for rural livelihood and agricultural development. Sistema.bio's biogas plants are also user-friendly and require low maintenance. Farmers can use biogas to not only meet their cooking and heating needs but also to generate electricity. One distinguishing feature of this biogas technology is that reactors can be transported and installed quickly, without the need for foundations or civil engineering work.


Piyush Sohani, Managing Director of Sistema.bio India, said, “We are delighted to receive this accreditation from the government. It's a significant step forward not only for Sistema.bio, but also for the Indian biogas industry as it will open the door for the adoption and use of modern biogas technologies in the country. In addition to providing clean cooking, biogas technology plays a pivotal role in reducing fossil fuel consumption and improving the quality of life of users. We at Sistema.bio look forward to helping more farmers benefit from our technology which can in turn make a positive contribution to the climate.”

The approved biogas technology comes in a variety of sizes including small, medium, and large flexi biogas plants, with a daily biogas output ranging from 1 to 25 cubic meters. The biodigesters are made from industrial-grade LLDPE geomembrane with a lifespan of more than ten years. These biogas plants are manufactured in the company's state-of-the-art Pune factory and meet MNRE, Govt of India standards.


Sistema.bio's biodigesters enable smallholder farmers to increase agricultural productivity and net income while also improving farm sustainability. Over 40,000 families in India, spread across 17 states, are currently producing clean and renewable energy with Sistema.bio digesters.
