Resource Recovery from Organic Wastes through Community Biogas Plants

D. Sumathi

Abstract: India as a developing country is gaining importance in several spheres in the world arena. Energy and environment are the main yard stick to measure the countrys sustainable development. In this regard the present study addresses these issues and present workable solutions for energy security and environmental sanitation. Human night soil management is a major sanitation problem in rural India. In India; the practice of open defecation had been a major problem. So; the multifaceted problems facing the rural households such as non-availability of clean energy; indoor pollution and insanitary surrounding due to open defecation can be mitigated through the night soil/garbage based Community Biogas Plant. The study has been framed in order to assess the benefits accrued in qualitative and quantitative terms by installing Community Biogas Plants.
