Energy from waste

Under non conventional energy sources, Dakshin Foundation promotes construction of Bio-Gas plants in the selected Villages. These plants convert the bio degradable waste, weeds/plant wastes and cow dung in Bio-gas. The residue from dung-based biogas plants makes a good fertiliser with minimal smell. It saves time and drudgery of women.

Biogas reduces indoor air pollution because it burns with a clean flame. This means that women do not have to breathe wood smoke, which is a major cause of respiratory and eye disease and responsible for an estimated 1.6 million deaths each year. This biogas is used as a fuel for cooking, lighting or generating electricity thereby saving the labour of gathering and using wood for cooking, minimise harmful smoke in homes, and cut deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions
