Kerala tourism to set up waste treatment plants
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Tourism Development Corporation has said it will install its own waste treatment plants in all their hotels including `Tamarind Easy Hotels`.
Biogas plants had already been set up in all major hotels owned by KTDC, while works were being completed at the Mascot and Chitram Hotels in the capital and Bolgatty palace in Kochi, a KTDC release said.
The initiative was part of the state government`s Green Kerala Initiative. The `Tamarind` KTDC hotels in Alappuzha and Kayamkulam already have waste treatment facility.
