In a bid to effective advantageous management of household wastes, the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) and Ranchi Municipal Corporation (RMC) are mulling over to build a Bio-Gas Plant at waste dump yard at Jhiri in Ranchi. A memorandum of understanding in this regard will be signed within one month.
Addressing a press meet on Friday GAIL Eastern India, Executive Director, KB Singh informed that a 180 tonne to 200 tonne capacity of waste management plant will be made at Jhiri so that through household’s wastes Bio-Gas could generate. “Through this plant not only Bio-Gas will produce but Organic Fertilizer will also be produced. The plant can generate five tonnes of Bio Gas per day which is approximate consumption of two thousand auto rickshaw per day,” he added.
Singh said on the occasion that as a part of the Petroleum Conservation Research Association’s larger campaign – Sanrakshan Kshamta Mahotsav, GAIL is organizing Saksham Fit India Walkathon on February 9 at Sri Jagannath HEC Ground in the State Capital at 9.30 am.
“Prime Minister, Narendra Modi firmly believes that if every citizen avoids using diesel or petrol driven transport medium, even for one day in a week, it would add up a great feat to the development of new India.
Inspired by PM Modi’s vision, PCRA has organized a month long awakening campaign through which walkathons across close to 624 districts will be organized by oil and gas PSU’s to draw mass attention and sensitize various groups of society on need and benefits of petroleum products conservation,” said Singh.
Emphasizing on the need of the campaign, the Executive Director said that the motive behind Saksham is to develop a mass awakening to adopt walking as a mechanism to not just save fuel but also safeguard the environment and its limited resources at large.
