What is the News?
Indian Scientists have developed a high rate biomethanation technology for the integrated treatment of sewage and organic solid waste.
What is Biomethanation Technology?
Biomethanation is a process by which organic material is microbiologically converted under anaerobic conditions to biogas.
About High Rate Biomethanation Technology:
High Rate Biomethanation Technology has been developed to convert sewage into clean water, biogas and manure.
It has been developed with the support of the ‘Waste Management Technology’ program.
About Waste Management Technology Program:
It has been launched by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) in 2015 in alignment with Swachh Bharath Abhiyan.
Aim: To promote the development of suitable technologies with the potential to clean the environment from the huge amount of residuals generated by industrial development and consumption lifestyles.
