New biogas plants using kitchen waste to power temple meals

September 22, 2018 |

In India, new biogas plants in all the gurudwara complexes in Delhi will be operational by October, thanks to the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee which is setting them up and using kitchen waste and food waste as a feedstock for the biogas plants.

“The committee had been facing various issues in waste management, but this waste would help in generating the energy good enough to cook the langar food in Delhi Gurudwaras,” according to DNA India. “For now the gurudwara are dependent on the natural gas supplied through pipelines by IGL, which has been costing a lot to these historic gurudwaras moreover the move to opt for biogas would reduce carbon footprints and make these holy places environment friendly.”
