New Delhi: Geeta colony got its first biogas plant on Saturday. Gautam Gambhir, East Delhi MP and cricket legend, inaugurated the plant at a formal ceremony.
The biogas plant is billed to generate electricity and compost by segregation of 5,000 kg biowaste on a daily basis. It can be used for twin purpose. One, to recycle garbage, and two, to convert it into electricity. The recycled bio compost can be used as fertiliser.

Speaking on the occasion, Gambhir said, “Unter cleanliness drive, we are taking useful initiative for waste management. Only bio-waste will be recycled here. We are giving green dustbins to locals to segregate wastage. Then only it would be beneficial or easy to recycle garbage.”
