The Hindu Business Line, Mangaluru, Jan 2017: Technology developed in India for kitchen-waste biogas production is all set to be implemented in the island-nations of Fiji and Vanuatu in the coming days. Mysuru-based National Institute of Engineering’s Centre for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technologies (NIE-CREST) will implement two indigenous technology-based projects in the countries. In an informal chat with BusinessLine on the sidelines of a workshop on kitchen-waste biogas plants here on Thursday, S Shamsundar, Director of NIE-CREST, said the centre has designed kitchen-waste biogas units of different capacities for Fiji and Vanuatu. Stating that IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) is emphasising the need for the use of green technology, he said the centre has agreed to fund a 1-tonne capacity kitchen-waste biogas unit for a prison in Suva, capital of Fiji. The plant can process 1,000 kg of kitchen waste a day to produce biogas.
