Delhi’s Gurdwara management committee has planned to switch from piped natural gas to biogas to run its langar kitchen in ten shrines here, including Bangla Sahib and Rakab Ganj Gurdwara.
The move is aimed at reducing carbon footprint, cut fuel cost and making the shrines environment friendly, said Manjeet Singh GK, the president of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).
The community kitchen in these Gurdwaras serves food to around 30,000 visiting devotees every day. Each plant would have the capacity to manage four quintal of kitchen waste per day, he said.
“The biogas plant would be set up in collaboration with an internationally reputed organic waste convertor company and is likely to be funded by a multinational corporation under its corporate social responsibility.
The community kitchens of remaining eight Gurdwaras will also be switched to bio fuel by the end of 2019 in a phased manner.
