Thiruvananthapuram Govt School Produces Biogas for Cooking Mid Day Meals


This is some excellent stuff.

Sree Moola Vilasom (SMV) Government Model Higher Secondary School is one of the oldest schools in Thiruvananthapuram city. Established by Swathi Thirunal Maharaja of the Travancore Kingdom in 1836, today this school is imparting education to more than 3000 children.

The children of this school are getting one of the important civic lessons i.e. solid waste management. Under the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Project (KSUDP), the Thiruvanathapuram city corporation set up a biogas plant with an approximate cost of Rs 3.85 lakh on the school premises in 2009. Initially it was operated by an agency but since 2011 the school authorities with the active participation of staff comprising nearly 100 teaching and non-teaching staff and students are operating and maintaining the biogas plant.

Using bio-waste of 150 kg per day, the volume of the gas generated in the plant is 10 m3.  The success of this project is highlighted by the fact that the mid-day meals provided to the students as well as the food in school canteen is cooked by the biogas generated by the plant.
