 The Indore-model waste treatment is a sustainable and cost-effective way of managing wet waste while also producing clean energy. It involves the bio methanation of wet organic waste, which produces bio-CNG (compressed natural gas) as a by-product. It has been recognized as one of the most effective waste management models in the world and has inspired over 72 countries to replicate it.

 

Usage: It can also be used as an example of “Waste to Wealth”. This mitigates the issues of waste management as well as energy security.
