Waste plant with AD to be built at Mumbai Central

A new waste plant with an AD unit will be constructed at the central railway station in Mumbai, Maharashtra. The proposal worth INR 4.4 million (EUR 58,289) raised by Western Railway has already been approved by the company’s general manager. The plant should be able of processing 500 kg of organic waste per day and is planned to be completed by late November 2017. Waste should be coming from the Mumbai Central station itself, the Mumbai Central base kitchen and the coach care centre. According to The Hindu, the waste will be converted into methane to replace the use of LPG in the staff canteen at the divisional railway manager’s (DRM) office. Moreover, the plant should also provide manure for Western Railway’s gardens and nursery.
