Methanol, viable fuel of future 5.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Opinion
As an alternative transportation fuel to gasoline, methanol has the potential to curb the kind of concentrated air pollution event witnessed recently in New Delhi while drawing upon indigenous resources for its production. Methanol can be produced from a variety of feedstock, including crop residues and municipal solid waste, the burning of which contributed to the precipitous decline in air quality levels in the capital recently, as well as coal, India's key hydrocarbon reserve. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Union government has, of late, started talking about setting up a methanol economy on account of both air quality and energy security concerns. However, fostering widespread methanol is going to present challenges and the experiences of China and the United States may both prove instructive. Overall, the government would do well to initially focus on select markets to create a sustainable base for heightened methanol production in India.

On a green track 5.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The Swachh Rail-Swachh Bharat programme of the Indian Railways, under which 'greening' of the railway tracks is underway, is fast picking up steam. By 2019, two years ahead of the schedule, the Indian Railways is expected to finish fixing 1,40,000 green toilets, technically known as bio-toilets, in all its 55,000 coaches. This should put an end to the harmful practice of disposal of faecal waste on the railway track and convert the rail network across India into a zero- discharge zone. Bio-toilets are eco-friendly toilets that use a bacterial inoculum to convert human waste into biogas (methane) and odourless liquid (water). The gas is released into the environment, whereas the liquid is discharged after chlorination. While the former can also be used as a source of energy, the latter (treated water effluent) can be used for irrigation purposes. Environmental concerns The Indian Railways has the third largest rail network in the world transporting more than eight billion passengers in a year. Spread over ...
