Kitchen waste turns to biogas nowadays. Several people are taking initiation on this. Som Narayan is one among them.

He established a company, Carbon Masters to utilize the kitchen waste effectively.

He says that most organic waste ends up in landfills and thereby produces methane.

In order to solve the issue Som’s startup is working in reducing carbon emissions.


Several biogas plants have been established by the company in various areas of the country.

Now, his company Carbon Masters is working on a project under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model in Bengaluru.

Under this, the company would establish biogas plant and work with the residents of Koramangala and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for 15 years.

The company establishes a biogas plant which can process four tonnes of waste. The segregated waste is collected from the societies and sent through a screw conveyor to be crushed into the slurry.

The four tonnes of processed waste can generate 100 kg of gas. This gas would be sold to a restaurant near to the biogas plant.

With this gas, 3,000 meals can be cooked a day.

Moreover, the plant can remove gases like CO2, H2S etc. and all unwanted impurities to produce clean cooking gas.

Its calorific value is higher than the normal LPG.

Another notable feature is that the biogas plant has a tracking facility so that users can control their pressure manually also. Thus, they can reduce gas wastage.

Using this biogas is very easy as well. Initially, one burner is connected to the biogas on a trial basis, but now all the burners are connected to the pipes of the biogas plant.

This Bio-CNG helps save 15 per cent cost to the restaurant.

In this way, the company ensures to provide an alternate clean and organic fuel at a lower price than traditional LPG.
