GUWAHATI: The foundation stone of a community biogas plant under GOBAR-Dhan Scheme under (SBM-G) Phase II was laid by PHED Minister Rihon Daimary at Moupur village of Nartap Goan Panchayat, Dimoria Development Block under Kamrup (Metro) district on Friday. Tamulpur MLA Emmanuel Mushahary and Dispur MLA Atul Bora were also present at the programme.
Speaking at the programme, Daimary said, "People of Moupur GP will adopt this plant as their own/community ownership covering six families and two community kitchens. This is the first time that this scheme has come up in Assam in Moupur GP under SBM-G. This will help in visual cleanliness of villages under SBM-G, plastic-free etc."
The GOBAR-Dhan scheme was proposed to ensure cleanliness in villages and sustain the open defecation-free status. It also helps to generate wealth and energy by converting cattle dung and solid agricultural waste into compost. The production of cooking gas will be utilized at Individual household and community level. It helps to reduce the environmental pollution and mitigate health hazards due to smoke generated by burning of fire woods, a press release said.
