LPG cylinders at households may soon be replaced by compressed biogas (CBG) if BBMP’s plan materialises.
Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike and Bruhat Bangalore Hotel Association (BBHA) have entered into an agreement with Noble Exchange Environment Solutions (NEX), an expert in waste management, to utilise wet waste generated by hoteliers to produce CBG, which can replace LPG.
The wet waste generated by BBHA will be collected by NEX and disposed of in an environmentally efficient manner while dry waste generated will be transported either to dry waste collection centres (DWCC) operated by BBMP or processed by NEX at their plant designed. NEX authorities claimed they will provide zero odour and zero drip waste bins and compostible garbage bags. BBHA members will have to segregate organic waste into these bins.
After collecting waste from hoteliers, NEX will utilise them to generate CBG. Such CBG, packed into cylinders/caskets is already available on commercial terms to customers who can use the same for replacement of LPG, NEX officials claimed.
