TNEB Engineer in Coimbatore Gets Biogas from Septic Tanks to Cook His Meals


A retired TNEB engineer has come out with a unique biogas producing system from his septic tank.

Retired additional chief engineer P. Selvan cooks his meals using the gas generated by the septic tank and as recognition of his effort, the District Rural Development Agency has provided a subsidy of Rs8,000 for the project.

Selvan, who recently settled down in Coimbatore with his wife Girijeshwari, has installed the energy saving project in his house as a part of green energy solutions for their daily needs. “We want to make our house a green energy home and this project is a part of it. We started work on the biogas project in November 2011 and now all our cooking is done through this system only,” Selvan said.
