Food Waste Management

Waste food generation is a major problem for institute hostels and in hotels in and around mandi. This biodegradable food is disposed off in a very crude way along with the rest of the garbage generated. We propose a study on the quantity of waste generated on a daily basis in major hotels around mandi and in our institute hostels. This study will enable us to explore the feasibility of proposing to set up a biogas plant, which would be a very efficient way of disposing the waste food. We have also thought of creating a CAD model of the proposed plant and doing computer simulations of the same to make the plant more efficient. At a later stage in our project we may as well need some financial assistance from the institute to fund the setting up of the proposed plant.
