An eco-friendly method to treat garbage may soon come your way. The biogas plant developed at the Integrated Rural Technology Centre (IRTC) can treat all kitchen waste produced in a house and turn it into biogas which can be used for cooking purpose. The 500-litre capacity plant can produce biogas that lasts for over one-and-a-half hours every day. Around three to four kilogrammes of kitchen waste can be deposited along with water in the plant, and it would help generation of nearly two hours of biogas every day. Made of fibre reinforced plastic, it comes with a burner and a PVC hose for the gas to pass from the plant to the stove. Besides kitchen waste, the plant is suitable to produce gas from water produced during rubber sheet processing and from animal faecal waste.
