IISc paper shows Bengaluru AD potential

Indian Institute of Science (IISc) published a paper that shows Bengaluru’s considerable percentage of waste that could be recovered and used as a cheaper source of energy. This was reported by the Bangalore Mirror. According to IISc, the city produces 3,000-4,000 tons of solid waste every day. 72% of the solid waste includes fermentables like food waste, garden waste, vegetable waste and fruit waste that could be converted into biogas. The investigators recommended a decentralised biomethanation and recyclable recovery system.
