Science simply is curiosity. It is the scientist that could be good or bad. The inner secrets of science are not shared outside a small group. The idea of science is enmeshed in philosophy, in myths, in theories, in smugness, in heroism, even in superstition, in fear, and in hindsight what actually happens inside is rarely told openly

Biogas plant to help dispose animal waste responsibly 20.8.2014 Asian Age: Mumbai
Based on the BARC’s technology, the BMC has decided to set up a 20 metric tonne capacity biodegradable waste and biogas plant at the Deonar abattoir. The plant will ensure that all animal waste from the abattoir is processed there itself and not thrown at dumping yards, which leads to increase in pollution. Slaughterhouse animal wastes like blood, intestines, feathers and hair are presently dumped at the Deonar dumping ground, due to which there have been allegations by nearby residents of foul smell and pollution. However, by having the biogas plant at the abattoir, the BMC will be able to achieve energy conservation, as well as a better environment, said experts. Professor Sharad Kale, head nuclear agriculture and biotechnology division, BARC, said, “Such biogas plants can be installed at schools, colleges, hostels, hospitals, hostels and malls. The decentralised handling of waste would reduce the transportation cost, need to use dumping yard and assure processing. Byproducts like biogas and manure ...

Running continuously for 747 days since August 2012, an indigenous nuclear reactor in Rajasthan has set a world record for becoming the best performing nuclear reactor in the last 20 years.
