Biodiesel project to be launched in Ayodhya
  • Ayodhya, April 25 (IANS) Ayodhya has been selected for the two-year pilot project to generate biodiesel from waste.
  • Belgium's Vito is soon expected to launch a project in Ayodhya.
  • The company, whose officials have begun working on the project, primarily works in the areas of 'cleantech' and sustainable development.
  • Last week, Vito's Asia-Pacific head Hafeez Rehman and other officials held the first round of meetings with the Ayodhya administration officials.
  • They also organised a workshop for the Ayodhya Municipal Corporation officials.
  • According to Vishal Singh, the municipal commissioner, the company will, initially, use one tonne of plastic waste to generate biodiesel.
  • Before setting up its own material recovery facility for waste segregation, it will use the facility owned by the corporation.
  • According to government officials, Ayodhya has been selected for the pilot project as it is likely to witness a surge in devotees' footfall after the Ram temple opens for devotees in January next year.
  • This will generate more waste, and disposal of garbage will be a major issue for the corporation.
  • The Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Tirath Kshetra Trust, a body involved in the construction of the Ram temple, has estimated a turnout of several lakhs of devotees every month.
  • According to corporation officials, the company will also help prepare cardboards and other products from waste.
  • "If the project succeeds in Ayodhya, then it will be extended to other parts of the state in a phased manner," said a senior government official.
  • Apart from waste management, managing the crowd will also be a big challenge in Ayodhya.
  • The trust has roped in the Rail India Technical and Economic Service (RITES) to carry out a study on crowd management in Ayodhya.
  • RITES, will prepare a report on crowd management in Ayodhya which will be implemented by the state government in the temple town.
