Goa’s Director of Education Santosh Amonkar has ordered all canteens on school premises in Goa to avail of schemes offered by the Goa Energy Development Agency (GEDA) and use environment-friendly biogas instead of LPG cylinders. This source of energy for cooking is cost-effective and also helps in solving the problem of kitchen waste and other organic wastes. In Goa, disposal of garbage including kitchen waste is an alarming problem. Moving to biogas will save at least 10 LPG cylinders a year. A subsidy of up to `30,000 is allotted for the beneficiaries under this scheme.
