Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) has requested the state government help them adopt a couple of gaushalas so  they can use the waste to produce compressed biogas using advanced technology that can be used for multiple purposes, according to Hindustan Times.
Addressing a press conference on Friday, AKTU vice chancellor Prof Pradeep Kumar Mishra said the request has been sent to the government to allocate the gaushalas. The university could then make use of advanced technology in preparing biogas or energy.
He said the university is going to start the Centre of Excellence in a wastewater management course. Under this, there would also be vocational courses offering BTech, MTech, and PhD qualifications.
He said: “The biggest challenge that the whole world is facing is that of water crisis. Water scarcity is occurring due to indiscriminate exploitation of groundwater and depletion of water bodies. In such a situation, students will be able to contribute to the society and the country by becoming water entrepreneurs by acquiring expertise in this field.”
