Students of the college water the plants on a daily basis. Vertical Garden has been created. Piping work for drip irrigation is in place for efficient water conservation. Drips will be created using old plastic bottles by students. Vermicompost pit is being installed to reuse garbage collected around the campus (dry leaves and twigs). It will function from the academic year 2021-22.
We consider it our best practice to give the saplings grown in the campus to Chief Guests and Resource Persons of all college and department activities as a memento. These saplings are given to the guests in paper bags made from handmade paper by the students of the college.
The greenery adds to the aesthetics of the campus and the Management takes personal interest to constantly enhance and adorn the premises.
GO GREEN Bio–Gas plant
Biogas project is Eco-Friendly project. It is to utilize the food waste into renewable energy. It helps to produce organic fertilizers , which in turn we use to generate manure to green plants. The fertilizer discharge from the digester can accelerate plant growth and resilience to diseases.
collect vegetable waste from outside from Vegetable market (T.Nagar railway station) and inside college.
The Bio-gas Plant was started on 1st of June 2018, by Enactus Shasun. Vegetable waste has been collected from Vegetable Vendors of Ranganathan street near T.Nagar railway station to feed the Bio-gas plant . The plant is usually fed with 40 to 50 Kg. of vegetable waste per day, which gives on an average of 2 to 3 Kg of gas per day. The gas generated has been used by the college canteen to boil 20 to 30 liters of milk in the morning and in the evening and also for cooking rice. The canteen is using on an average of 1.5 to 2 Kg. of gas per day.
The canteen uses 20 Kg per month then it has saved almost Rs. 700 per month. From the month of June ’18 to Nov’18 it has used 92 Kg of gas , where it costs Rs. 3,220.
Benefit of this project
