Eco Powerhouse: Hyundai’s EcoGram Transforms Trash into Treasure, Curbing 1.4 Million kg of CO2

Gurugram, April 22, 2024 – In a bold step towards urban sustainability, Hyundai Motor India Foundation’s (HMIF) innovative project, EcoGram, has achieved a significant environmental milestone by saving 1.4 million kg of CO2 emissions since its launch in October 2022. The project, a combined biogas plant and material recovery facility located in Gurugram, serves as a dynamic solution to urban waste, converting it into valuable biogas and recycled materials.

EcoGram, which represents an investment of Rs. 2.13 crore by HMIF, operates with a daily capacity to process 2,000 kg of wet waste and 5,000 kg of dry waste, sourced from over 2,000 households and Hyundai Motor India’s own headquarters. The facility’s efforts have prevented the equivalent of 404,000 kg of waste from reaching landfills, further emphasizing its role in reducing urban pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

One of the standout features of EcoGram is its ability to generate electricity from waste-derived biogas. With an installed capacity of 200 kilowatts per day, the facility has produced a total of 40 megawatts of electricity from 40,000 metric tons of biogas, which includes 24,240 metric tons of methane. Annually, this amounts to about 76 megawatts of electricity, setting a new standard for waste-to-energy conversion.

Puneet Anand, AVP & Vertical Head – Corporate Affairs at Hyundai Motor India Limited, highlighted the project’s broader implications: “EcoGram isn’t just about managing waste; it’s a leap towards redefining what sustainable waste management can look like in metropolitan areas. Our facility not only reduces the ecological footprint of waste but also sets a scalable example for others to emulate. With continued success, we hope to expand our operations and begin supplying surplus electricity to the national grid.”

The EcoGram facility operates with the support of the Metropolitan Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) and local Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs), ensuring a seamless collection and processing of waste. This collaboration underscores a community-focused approach to sustainability, aiming to make EcoGram a beacon of environmental responsibility in Gurugram and potentially beyond.
