Madurai Municipal Corporation proposes to generate natural gas from biodegradable waste available in Tirumangalam, Madurai Flower market and Melur with the help of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC).
Local civic body officials await project report from BARC following which it could implement the plan. Scientists from BARC held discussions with officials and Municipal Commissioners of Melur and Tirumangalam in this regard recently.
Scientist Daniel Chellappa said officials had sought a project report regarding the technology available to generate natural gas from biodegradable waste. The gas could be used to generate electric power that illuminates streets in the night daily.
BARC has developed several technologies that can be used by local bodies to keep their areas clean and also generate power to meet local needs.
