The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), India, has recently clarified that it will run eight small biogas plants which it had planned to shut down, by making technological changes.

On June 29, a source in India reported: “25 biogas plants set up at Rs100 were to be shut down by Pune civic body.”

Kunal Khemnar, PMC Additional commissioner, and Asha Raut, head of the Solid Waste Management Department, said: “Of the 25 plants, 13 are operational and will not be shut down. Of the remaining 12 plants, PMC will change the technology of eight plants and use four plants for other purposes.”

Khemnar added: “PMC would continue its policy to decentralise solid waste processing in the city of Pune. The spots allocated for solid waste management across the city will not be used for any other purpose.”
