Biofuel With Vegetable Waste At Gudimalkapur Market

Hyderabad, Nov 30 (Maxim News): Gudimalkapur Vegetable market has taken steps to produce biogas fuel from vegetable waste, for this, the Indian institute of Chemical Technology has provided technical knowledge and prepared for other key researches.

With this, it looks like killing two birds with one stone, while the burden of waste transportation and management will be reduced locally, at the same time, there is a golden opportunity to produce biogas to meet the local needs.

Hyderabad based Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, which is promoting innovation in the chemical sector, jointly with the Gujarat based Pharma company has already provided the technological know-how required for the preparation of medicines used for the prevention of deadly diseases like cancer. For this, it provided technical knowledge for the biogas plant to be set up in Gudimalkapur Vegetable market of the city. As this plant will be available soon, 5 tons of vegetable waste produced on a regular basis will be converted into fuel.

Gudimalkapur is one of the markets where thousands of tons of vegetables are brought in every day, this market is important for the sale of fruits and flowers along with vegetables. As more than 5 tons of vegetable waste is produced every day, its removal is becoming a heavy burden. The Agriculture department of Telangana has already set up biogas plants in market yards with the aim of converting waste into energy sources. So far, the city has set up three plants in Erragadda, Batasingaram and Kukatpally markets with a capacity of 500 kg of biogas production per day. With the newly available plant in Gudimalkapur market also, the management cost of vegetable waste will be reduced and there is an opportunity to use the additional biogas produced for local needs.

It may be recalled that the first biogas plant under the auspices of the Central Biotechnology Institute and the Telangana Agriculture department was set up two years ago at old Bowenpally market in Hyderabad, aiming to recycle 10 tonnes of waste per day, about Rs. 5 crores, the plant was made available and treated 3,664 tonnes of waste within a period of 20 months, With the 1,27,228 lak cubic meters of biogas produced, 75,703 kilowatts of electricity was generated and additional enough biogas for 1152 commercial LPG gas cylinders was used for local needs by effectively utilizing the wasted vegetable waste, the monthly savings of around Rs. 5 lakhs waste management and current charges are also saved.

With the setting up of a biogas plant at Gudimalkapur Vegetable market it is estimated that it will generate income in lakhs by 5 to 7 tons of waste is generated. It is also known that biofertilizers can be produced. Experts say that in view of the good demand for chemical free vegetables, the use of fertilizers will also be reduced with the biomanure produced here. While it is possible to generate electricity with high concentrations of bio methane, it is expected that biogas can be used for cooking purposes and also meet the electricity requirements in the market.
