As a part of IIT Gandhinagar waste management initiatives, to minimize waste going into landfills, the food & organic waste from across the campus space(green bins) go to the IITGN biogas plant. This biogas plant established in collaboration with BARC generates manure and electricity from the food and organic waste with no other by-products. It is designed to help save 1 tonne of waste from going to the landfills each day and in turn generate manure and electricity from them.
