City Corporation authorities are working on a proposal to set up biogas plants in all the major markets and bus stands for the disposal of generated waste in the source points itself. The proposal came under the various initiatives put forth by the civic body for the management and disposal of solid waste at the generation point itself.

The civic body is also planning to revamp the unused biogas plant at Mofussil bus stand for the disposal of the generated waste at the bus stand and its surrounding areas. Another biogas plant will come up at Palayam vegetable market.

The schemes are proposed under the annual plan programme of the corporation for the financial year 2017-2018. The civic body had entrusted Niravu for the revival of the unused biogas plant at central fish market. The agency had completed the removal all the piled up plastic waste and removed stored gas from the plant. The existing plant at central fish market has the capacity to generate 70 cubic meters of biogas per day.

Corporation health standing committee chairman K V Baburaj said an unused biogas plant is situated in the premises of Mofussil bus stand. "We are in search for an experienced agency and sponsor to set up biogas plants at Mofussil bus stand and a new one at Palayam vegetable market. The scheme will be rolled out once the biogas plant at central market commences its operation,'' he said.
