Holy Family Hospital has installed a "Bio-Methane Plant of Capacity 250kg/day". Which is producing around 20kg of the gas per day in winters and expected more than 40kg of gas in summers. Which not only reduce the load on landfills but also encouraged the use of biogas a renewable source of energy and reduce the cost of LPG to some extent by incorporating such alternate sources into system. It is also a great step towards decrease in health issues caused by exposure and handling of MSW(Municipal Solid Waste) due to mixing of wet and dry waste. Around 125kg/day organic waste is generated daily from the kitchen and approx. 90kg/day from the canteens, hostels and residential inside the campus.

Bio methane is a naturally occurring gas which is produced during breakdown of organic matter such as kitchen waste/organic waste/food waste.

All large hospitals have kitchen facilities and canteens where meals are cooked for indoor patient and employees. On an average 100 to 150mg/meal food waste is generated which includes leftover and raw food material. The food waste have high content of nutrients which can be dispose of in environmental friendly method by composting or by anaerobic decomposition to produce gas. Composting require large area and time for its maturation whereas anaerobic digester can generate methane gas in 10-15 days. Around 60% of the gas has methane concentration which can be used for cooking food in kitchen, heating systems as well as can be mixed with diesel to generate electricity.

The plant is Designed and Installed by Eco Pacific Solutions Pvt. Ltd. a professionally Managed company specialized in Sustainable waste Management concepts: WASTE TO ENERGY & WASTE TO WEALTH and promotes Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan through awareness and by introducing green eco-friendly technologies.
