Kannur: Kannur district is leading by example in poultry waste management and is in its pursuit of an ambitious accolade- Kerala's first 'poultry waste-free district', by end of January. This has been spearheaded by the combined efforts of Suchitwa Mission and Haritha Keralam Mission.
The objective is to put an end to the issue faced by the people from the illegal dumping of slaughter waste. The vendors have welcomed the move and are in favour of the scientific processing of poultry waste.
Notably, the initiative is going to be operational after three years of hard work. Amid this, police had nabbed many who dumped the waste in an improper manner that threatened the hygiene and cleanliness of the surroundings. The waste dumping even affected the quality of water.
The initiative is backed by an expat community, Kannur Venture, and a company named Virad. The waste will be collected from the chicken stalls and will be scientifically processed through renter plants. The output can be used for making feed for fish and dogs.
Notably, the license was made mandatory for operating chicken stalls. For license, a contract with biogas plant or processing plant or contract with renter plant has been made compulsory.
