Biogas

As Muni Seva Ashram grew in size over the years, Ashram employees remained very conscious about cost reduction and sustainability. As a result, the Ashram adopted many sustainable technologies wherever possible, allowing work activities to be in harmony with nature. One such technology was the use of compression cylinders to create bio-gas, a combustible gas made of fermented cow dung that can be used to cooking and as fuel in farm vehicles.

Today, biogas is produced at both the Ashram's Gaushala Cow Sheds and the Green Campus at Vankuva. In addition to using cow dung, the Gaushala biogas plant utilizes organic food waste to generate gas for kitchens on the Ashram's main campus.

Another 430m3 biogas plant, fueled by cow dung, press mud from sugar mills, chicken litter, and kitchen waste, produces gas that is enriched by scrubbing and bottled under pressure. This compressed natural gas, called Bio-CNG, serves the Ashram's Athiti Mandir (guest house) kitchen.
