The continued apathy of the State Government and the District administration, environmental pollution has resulted in creating a situation where many mountain towns are experiencing the problem caused by epidemic proportions of polythene waste not disposed scientifically.
The rural population in India does not have access to reliable energy. India has millions of tonnes of unused and available biomass waste. This loose biomass is currently treated as a waste with no economic value. It is often burnt inefficiently in open fields, causing air pollution. However this 'waste' can be turned into a completely environment-friendly source of energy through briquetting.
