Day to day increase in population increases the generation of waste in the universe. Dumping of waste without proper treatment creates a dangerous situation including that of ecological imbalance. The immediate aftereffect will be the outbreak of epidemic diseases. Accumulation of waste also creates severe long term environmental problems like climatic change, global warming etc. Now it is high time that we open our eyes to ensure scientific treatment and disposal of waste without causing any harm to the atmosphere. Otherwise the lives of the people of the next generation on the planet earth, would be affected very adversely. What should be our attitude in handling waste? The problems caused by waste can be reduced considerably through timely and speedy treatment. A better solution for that, is to treat the waste at source itself. Different types of waste have to be collected in different bins for treatment. This helps in sorting out the waste for identifying each type for proper treatment and disposal. A civic sense has to be evolved to collect waste and to dispose it off. Biomethanisation technology is the most suitable one to treat bio degradable waste and to generate bio energy without creating environmental problems. BIOTECH through its research and development has designed different model plants to produce cooking gas and also to generate electricity from bio waste and wastewater coming out from private houses and public institutions. Invention of technology for producing cooking gas from kitchen waste (1998), Installation of more than 12,000 domestic plants in different locations within the State and installation of Kerala's 1st 'Waste to Electricity Plant' (2004) and Kerala's first Integrated Waste Management System(2006) are quite a few of the milestones showing the achievements of BIOTECH. With the slogan "Bio Energy from Bio Waste" BIOTECH is proceeding ahead by participating in the Waste to Energy campaign successfully.
