Dr. Sasi Tharoor was speaking on the occasion of the inauguration of the waste treatment electricity generation plant installed in the Parassala market with the technical support of BIOTECH. Dr. Sasi Tharoor has also commented about the efficient functioning of the waste treatment electricity generation plant installed in the Sreekaryam market in the Trivandrum Corporation. He had pointed out that the continuous working of this waste treatment plant for the last 8 years efficiently is itself an example of the good quality of this project. If the installation of the waste treatment plants as in Parassala and Sreekaryam are made on a wider scale, throughout the Trivandrum corporation area, it may be possible to find a lasting solution to the present waste problem. This plant is capable of generating 75 KW of power per day by treating 500 Kg of bio waste. By utilizing this power, apart from operating the different machine parts of the plant, it could be possible to light 100 bulbs installed along the road leading to Parassala junction.
As the operation of this plant for the next 4 years will be under the direct control of BIOTECH, it could be possible to ensure efficient functioning of the plant.
