By using vermiculture technology to transform rubbish into high-quality manure, the New Mangalore Port Authority (NMPA) has adapted to handle garbage production on its own. Sales of the excess composted manure would bring in money. The Port Authority has chosen to use vermiculture technology to transform rubbish into high-quality manure as part of its self-management strategy.

  • Earlier, the port was disposing of the garbage in the municipal designated location, spending ₹3000/- per day.
  • By adopting vermiculture technology with a CAPEX of ₹50 lakh, the port would be generating a revenue of ₹4.50 lakh per annum.
  • The manure generated is 1.5 tons per month, which would be used for the plantation and gardening work in the port area. This would save NMPA purchasing of manure from the market.
  • The surplus compost manure would be sold and revenue would be generated.
