Focus on Biogas and others: Maruti Suzuki announces investment of Rs 450 crores over the next three year

In a crucial move towards sustainability, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has launched a pilot biogas plant at its Manesar facility for the fiscal year 2024-25. This innovative project will convert in-house food waste and Napier grass into energy, aligning with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s ‘Waste to Energy’ programme.



MSIL has also unveiled plans for a substantial investment totaling approximately Rs 450 crores over the upcoming three years, commencing from FY 2024-25, aimed at fortifying its environmental sustainability endeavors. This notable financial pledge follows the company’s preceding investment of Rs 120.8 crores in renewable energy ventures, encompassing solar power and biogas, during FY 2023-24, reported Auto Car Professional.

A cornerstone of this multi-crore investment is the recent launch of a pilot Biogas plant at MSIL’s Manesar facility for the fiscal year 2024-25. Aligned with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s ‘Waste to Energy’ initiative, the project harnesses in-house food waste and Napier grass for biogas production. Anticipated to yield 0.2 tons of biogas daily, the pilot plant aims for an output of around 1 lakh standard cubic meters of biogas in FY 2024-25, potentially offsetting 190 tonnes of CO2 annually.

Hisashi Takeuchi, Managing Director & CEO of Maruti Suzuki India Limited, underscored the company’s dedication to sustainable practices, affirming, “As we advance our production capacity from approximately 2 million to 4 million by 2030-31, we are concurrently accelerating efforts to enhance the proportion of sustainable and renewable energy sources throughout our operations. The Rs. 450 crore investment over the next three years underscores our commitment to nurturing a cleaner and more sustainable energy ecosystem at MSIL and within the broader industry.”

Insights gleaned from the pilot biogas project at the Manesar facility will be integrated into MSIL’s forthcoming state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, thereby amplifying the impact of the Rs 450 crore investment. This substantial financial commitment positions Maruti Suzuki India Limited as a frontrunner in the automotive sector’s transition toward a greener and more sustainable future.
