Pune: Tata Motors, India’s No 1 Bus Brand, recently showcased the country’s first Bio-CNG Methane Bus in Pune during ‘Urja Utsav’ – a two-day Bio energy programme organized by the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas. Tata Motors has designed and developed this Bio-CNG bus from kitchen waste. Technologies developed for CNG engines have been further modified and upgraded for most efficient operation with bio methane engines. The displayed products at the Utsav (TATA 3.8 L SGI BS-IV and TATA 5.7 L SGI BS-IV CNG /Bio methane engines and TML LPO1613 Bus) have been certified for performance by ARAI Pune and VRDE Ahmednagar. Present at the event were Hon’ble Minister of MoPNG (Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas) Shri Dharmendra Pradhan and Minister of State with Independent Charge for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy and Mines, Shri Piyush Goyal.
Equipped with BS-4 emission norms, the Bio-CNG (Methane) Bus can be upgraded to BS-6 emission norms as well. This technology will help promote clean fuels, further strengthening Government of India’s ‘Smart-Cities’ initiative.
Tata Motors has been offering CNG vehicles for close to two decades and has pioneered and introduced several technologies in CNG engines related to vehicle performance and safety including sequential gas injection technology, skip fire, plug top coils, long life spark plug and longer oil drain intervals. At Tata Motors, we will continue to invest in new technologies and develop products that can contribute to CO2 reductions across all road transport segments.
