Bengaluru plant will use waste from police quarters to produce biogas for cooking
GAIL Gas Limited, Bengaluru, the Bengaluru Commissioner of Police and implementing agency Hasiru Dala have signed a tripartite agreement for setting up a 1-TPD-CL box biogas plant in the City Armed Reserve (CAR)-South campus at Adugodi, Bengaluru under a GAIL Gas CSR initiative.
The agreement was signed in the presence of Commissioner of Police Kamal Pant, IPS, and Vivek Wathodkar, Chief General Manager & Officer-in-Charge, GAIL Gas Limited, Bengaluru.
The project, costing Rs 39.20 lakh, will be executed by renowned Bengaluru-based NGO Hasiru Dala, a non-profit, social impact organisation.
The project, which aims to use biodegradable waste for production of biogas and manure, will be a game changer in reducing the piles of waste and achieving the bigger objective of making the police facility at Adugodi a zero waste campus.
The plant will produce biogas from the waste generated by the police quarters and from other sources, which will be used for cooking food for police dogs. The biogas will also be piped to the community hall kitchen and the common facility of the Bengaluru police on the CAR campus.
