GHMC to set up biogas plant at Khaitlapur

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has decided to generate wealth out of waste by setting up a 20-ton capacity biogas plant at Khaitlapur Transfer Station located in the Kukatpally zone.

Transfer stations are the points where the garbage collected from households and other places is dumped temporarily before it is transported to the Jawahar Nagar dump yard for recycling. This biogas plant set up in Khaitlapur Transfer Station will convert the waste into Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

The conversion process involves the wet waste collected from households and public places being crushed in the plant followed by the crushed waste being stored in a pre-digestion plant for three days and then being released into another tank. After the completion of this



process, microorganisms are released into the tank and Methane gas is generated. And from the Methane, CNG is extracted.

This project is being funded by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL)- Balanagar, under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). According to the proposal, the company will fund Rs 4 crore to set up the plant with Rs 3 crore funded in the financial year 2022-23 and Rs 1 crore released during the 2023-24 financial year. 

“The Khaitlapur Transfer Station has been proposed as a feasible location for the installation of this plant as it has been producing 200 to 300 metric tons of biowaste daily. The proposal to set up this plant will be placed before the GHMC Standing committee for approval,” said a GHMC official.
