Where the experiment done

In the growing concerns of energy crisis, one of the foremost research institutes of the country claimed that it has acheived a success in experiment of generating electricity from tapioca leaves. The Central Tuber Research Institute (CTCRI) of Thiruvananthpuram under the Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR) has come up with a new invention that can offer new impetus to India's initiative for clean energy source.

Waste comes from after mechanical extraction of insecticidal molecules from Tapiuoca leaves was subjected to Methanogenesis.

Pure Methane was separated from the gas complex by scrubbing off unwanted gases. The end product after generating electricity from tapioca called as CASSA DIPAH. Approximately 5 tons of leaves and twings are wasted per hectare of tapioca harvest.
