Prof. Dr. Bhadraman Tuladhar, Registrar of Kathmandu University has inaugurated the demonstration  lighting of street lamps by switching on the generator on the eve of MAHASHIVRATRI ( March 2nd 1011 ) at Tankeswar Mahadev tempble of  Kalimati area at Kathmandu Metropolitan City.

Everyday, tones of organic waste are produced from Kalimati market, that can be used to produce biogas by anaerobic digestion process. The produced biogas can be used to generate electricity. Department of Mechanical Engineering at Kathmandu University has collaborated with Tankeswor Mahadev Preservation Society to launch project on installation of biogas plant for generation of electricity for street lighting at Tankeswor Mahadev area situated at the bank of Bishnumati River using vegetable waste of Kalimati Vegetable and Fruit Market. The program is being supported by Canadian Cooperation Organization.

In this project, the students have installed 10 m3 biogas plant as per guideline set by BSP Nepal with slight modification in the feeding section consisting of a chopping mechanism for vegetable waste. The produced biogas can run gas-engine to generate electricity for about 5 hours per day. This electricity can be used for street lighting at Tankeswor area, Mahadev temple, dead body burning areas (Masan ghat ),  ritual house (kiriya ghar), and bhajan ghar using CFL bulbs.
