Wet waste turned into fuel for restaurant kitchen

Source: The Hindu, Date: , 2019

One neighbourhood may have the answer to Bengaluru’s garbage management problems. For the past three months, nearly three tonnes of wet waste generated by residents of a few neighbourhoods in Koramangala's 5th and 6th Blocks is being processed and converted to biogas. The biogas is generated in a unit installed in the Solid Waste Management Centre on Hosur Road. The biogas goes into the kitchen of a popular eatery, which is adjacent to the centre. Padmashree Balaram from the Koramangala Residents' Welfare Association (RWA) said the Urban Development Department had recently approved upscaling of the unit.“Koramangala 5th and 6th Blocks generate a total of 20 tonnes of wet waste every day. The level of segregation of waste at source is good here,” she said. The processing unit was set up by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on a public-private partnership with Carbon Masters India Pvt. Ltd.
