In a major initiative, the Delhi’s Gurudwaras management committee has planned to switch from piped natural gas to biogas.
This will be crucial as these Gurudwaras run massive community kitchens or langar as they are locally known.
The move will vastly help at reducing carbon footprint and also to cut fuel cost.
This was announced by Manjeet Singh GK, who is the president of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC).
It was informed that the bio gas plants would be set up at Rakab Ganj and Bangla Sahib that generate largest quantity of biodegradable waste.
The scale of these community kitchens of these Gurudwaras could be ascertained from the fact that they serve food to around 30,000 visiting devotees every day.
The operating cost of the plant is low and there is no need for maintenance for initial two years.
