India government plans biogas for schools
Three schools in India are going green with biogas plants being installed on their sites.
Under a scheme being funded by the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Project, over the next month Cotton Hill Government Higher Secondary School for Girls; Government Girls HSS, Pattom; and Government Vocational Higher Secondary School, Manacaud, will all have biogas plants built within their schools.
Decentralised waste treatment plants will be installed under the development, with the capacity to process 150kg a day, turning it into biogas.
At this stage of the project, tenders have been asked to set up the plants. Previously a biogas plant was built at SMV School and it has been deemed a success.
Throughout the next year, the government plans to install similar plants in all public schools across the country and also wanted to build decentralised garbage processing plants in markets in the city under another environmentally friendly plan.
