Goregaon temple turns its wet waste into electricity 8.1.2018 DNA: India
One of the biggest temple trusts in Mumbai has set up a hybrid system, a combination of biogas plant coupled with solar panels, to not only produce electricity from wet waste generated in its premises but also with a target to gradually shift to renewable energy for power. Last week, the Ayappa Seva Samgham temple at Goregaon, Bangur Nagar, which generates up to 500 kilograms of wet waste including all the floral offerings, set up solar panels and converted its existing biogas plant to produce electricity. In fact, in the coming months, it is also planning to set up a waste water treatment plant to ensure that all the waste water generated from its temple premises can be reused. “We had the biogas plant setup and the gas produced was used for small purposes but we decided to better the system thus not only a setup was added to convert the gas into electricity but solar panels too were added and the electricity which will be generated will now help us light up a small community hall,” said Retired Colonel ...

Mexico's prickly pear cactus: An energy source of the future? 20.8.2017 DNA: Top News
The prickly pear cactus is such a powerful symbol in Mexico that they put it smack in the middle of the national flag. It was considered sacred by the ancient Aztecs, and modern-day Mexicans eat it, drink it, and even use it in medicines and shampoos. Now scientists have come up with a new use for the bright green plant: producing renewable energy. Instantly recognizable with its jumble of spiny discs -- its bright red fruit protruding like fat fingers from each one -- the prickly pear cactus is farmed on a massive scale in Mexico. Its soft inner flesh plays a starring role in a plethora of favorite national dishes: tacos, soups, salads, jams and even candies. Believed by some to have healing powers, the cactus is also used in blood pressure medications, anti-hair loss shampoos, skin creams and diet juices. "Since before the Spanish conquistadors arrived, we have eaten prickly pear cactus. It's our tradition and our culture," said Israel Vazquez, who has farmed the cactus for the past 20 years on a small ...
