The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOP&NG) is responsible for the exploration, production, refining, distribution, marketing, import, export, and conservation of petroleum, natural gas, petroleum products, and liquefied natural gas in India.

This Ministry has notified the National Policy on Biofuels -2018. Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) initiative was launched in 2018 to promote Compressed Bio Gas (CBG) as an alternative green transport fuel for efficient management of biomass and organic waste.

SATAT envisages developing 5,000 CBG plants by 2023-24 with total CBG production capacity of 15 million metric tonnes per annum, which is about 40% of current CNG consumption of 44 million tonnes per annum in the country. The CBG plants will also produce a by-product i.e bio-manure and the same can be utilised in farming sector.
