Beverage and snack food giant says new biogas plant, which uses biodegradable waste generated at the Pune-based site, is running at full capacity.
Gurgaon, India-based PepsiCo India, a division of PepsiCo, has installed a biogas plant at its Pune-based Frito-Lay manufacturing unit that’s now up and running.
It‘s the first plant within Frito-Lay’s global operations to use biogas.
PepsiCo India is using the biogas instead of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for two of its seven processing lines for the snack product Kurkure.
The other lines are expected to continue to be powered by LPG, a mixture of hydrocarbon gases that’s used as a fuel and is considered to be a low carbon emitter.
