Kathmandu Turns Waste into Biofuel

The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) and the European Union will share a 18.2 million rupee investment to process waste into biofuel.  According to the June 27th issue of The Kathmandu Post, the Integrated Sustainable Solid Waste Management Project will turn three metric tonnes of organic materials into 300 kilograms organic fertiliser, 14 kilowatts electricity and 13,500 liters water.  EU’s ambassador to Nepal, Rensje Teerink, said he would like Kathmandu to be known to the world as a beautiful and clean city.Solid Waste Project
