COIMBATORE: Kurudampalayam Panchayat shows the way in solid waste management by installing a bio-methanisation plant with the help of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC). The plant installed at a cost of 30lakh generates four cylinders of gas per day which is supplied to the community hall built by the panchayat to fuel stoves. More than 250 families can use the stove free of cost to cook food on rotation basis.

“Trial runs are going on and the inauguration will be conducted on January 14, 2015. We will keep 20 fuel stoves at the community hall and families from Nehru Colony can cook their food using the stoves. We will issue tokens to each family based on which they could use the community hall for cooking on rotation basis. The project has been funded by the district rural development agencies (DRDA),” said D Ravi, president, Kurudampalayam village panchayat.
