As the city is taking up activities at various levels to solve the escalating solid waste management problem, the Women’s Prison at Attakulangara is not staying behind. From setting up a new biogas plant to starting paper bag making, the inmates and the authorities of the jail are playing their role to tackle the mounting problem.

The Rs.7-lakh biogas plant being set up at the prison can process up to 400 kg of waste. The work on the plant is expected to be completed in two months. Project official Sajith Varma said the plant could produce up to 10 kg equivalent LPG. “Since we have the fixed dome type plant, it does not create any type of pollution and it can also process liquid waste. The maintenance cost is also very low compared to other plants,” he said.

The well-nurtured vegetable garden in the jail compound will turn completely organic soon. The Centre for Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development (C-Sted) will offer one-month special training in organic manure making, vermin-composting, etc., to the inmates. C.Sted will also impart training in seed and nursery management.
