Indian schools to get free biogas plants

Schools in India are set to benefit from plans by Kochi to introduce biogas plants to help convert waste into heat and power.

Kochi will work with Suchitwa Mission to provide the systems to both government and aided schools under the umbrella theme of ‘My City, My Pride’, part of the Suchitwa Varsham waste management programme.

‘The biogas plants will be installed to treat waste generated on school premises. It will be ensured that plastic and other non-biodegradable substances are removed before transferring the waste collected in bins to the plants, which will be installed at schools free of charge,’ says health standing committee chairman T K Asharaf.

The project is set to start from the beginning of November.
