In another big leap towards promoting cleanliness and better energy conservation; N.F.Railway authority has commissioned a Bio-gas plant at Dibrugarh yesterday. The plant has a capacity of processing 500 kgs of organic waste daily to produce 25-30 kgs of energy equivalent of gas. The organic waste is presently being collected from Rajdhani Express trains, Railway Running Room and Chowkidinghee staff colony. The gas so produced is presently being used for cooking purposes in the Railway Running Room, Dibrugarh. It is going to reduce the energy purchase bill of the Running Room. There is proposal to use the bio-gas so produce for cooking in the Coaching Depot Staff Canteen in near future. The initiative to produce green energy from collected waste has been taken by the Medical Department of N.F.Railway’s Tinsukia division. Commissioning of the plant will also help in maintaining a clean and hygienic environment in the surrounding areas.
