"भारत में मवेशियों की आबादी पूरे विश्व में सबसे ज़्यादा है। मवेशियों के गोबर, कृषि से निकले कचरे, आदि से बायोगैस बनाने की दिशा में ‘GOBAR-Dhan’ योजना अहम् है। यह सिर्फ एक योजना नहीं, बल्कि गाँवों को स्वच्छ रखने, किसानों एवं पशुपालकों की आमदनी बढ़ाने और बायोगैस के माध्यम से waste to wealth और waste to energy पाने का सशक्त माध्यम है।"
