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.

Besides KTDC hotels, the corporation had also installed a biogas plant at Thiruvananthapuram museum with the assistance of the Museums and Zoos department.

With the completion of the work, KTDC would set an example of becoming green with biogas treatment plants. Waste generated from the hotels would be recycled and used for gardening.
