In a visionary move towards sustainable practices, Saveetha Institute of Medical and Technical Science in Kanchipuram has recently embraced a green initiative by installing a cutting-edge Green Connect Biogas Plant. The installation, designed to process 500 kg of food waste daily from the institutes canteen, has become a beacon of environmentally conscious energy solutions. Motivated by a commitment to fostering a conducive learning environment while reaping NAAC benefits, Saveetha College sought out eco-friendly alternatives, which led them to Green Connect. Recognizing the potential for positive change, the college swiftly moved forward with the installation of the biogas plant. Green Connect introduced its new model biogas plant made of FRP, an eco-friendly solution for organic waste treatment in large-scale industries. The digester, designed for uniform waste distribution, ensures leak-proof anaerobic bacterial digestion. Capable of treating 10-1000 kg of organic waste, the system incorporates high-pressure biogas burners, a gas holder made of durable fibreglass, and a robust gas
piping system for minimal pressure loss. The gas pressure gauge and control valves facilitate precise regulation, while thebiogas metre tracks daily consumption, aiding in accurate record-keeping and potential carbon credit earnings. With features like a slurry collection tank for nutrient-rich organic manure and an industrial pulper for efficient waste digestion, our biogas plant is a sustainable choice for waste management. What makes this undertaking even more remarkable is the specially designed high-pressure model, overcoming challenges typically associated with biogas plant installations. Saveetha College is now proudly utilizing this sustainable energy source, marking a significant stride in alternative energy and waste management. The institute stands as a shining example of how educational institutions can lead the way in creating a greener, cleaner future. This eco-conscious endeavor not only aligns with global sustainability goals but also sets a precedent for other institutions to follow suit in the pursuit of a harmonious coexistence with the environment.
