Green Initiatives

SRIET implemented Rain Water Harvesting within the campus as an alternative source of water. The rain water conservation resolves the high demand of water in the institution. The harvested rain water is used for non-drinking purposes like gardening, water supply for canteen, hostel, laboratories, laundry, and toilets.


SRIET has built a rainwater harvesting system of size 24 x 9 feet, 20 feet high which collects the rain water from the terrace of over 15,000 square feet water collection area. The rainwater that falls on the roof is channelized by the roof catchment systems into a tank through gutters and pipes. The capacity of the tank is 1,50,000 litres. Through rain water harvesting water sources will be recharged as well as restores the wells. It can reduce soil erosion and controls surface water run-off. And also improves freshwater consistency and quality of water.

Energy conservation is the behavior that results in the use of less energy. SRIET has the following Energy conservation practices which conserves more energy.
  1. Usage of LED lightings – The entire campus was fitted with LED lightings
  2. Solar street lights – All street lights having solar panels which uses only solar power
  3. Usage of detective sensors – Detective sensors are fitted inside the main block for detecting movement of people to form a vital component of automated lighting control.
Sri Ranganathar Institute of Engineering and Technology (SRIET) will ensure that providing all technical support in the endeavor of every Person with Disability in the campus achieve full liberation and self-esteem by equalization of opportunities through creation of enabling environment, so that the students getting admitted in our institution with disability is benefitted from their untapped talent and contribution. SRIET will ensure the promotion of innovative and adaptive technology in order to create and facilitate access to social and economic rehabilitation for students with disabilities.
  • Buildings are equipped with ramps with rails.
  • Class room and lab blocks are provided with lift for facilitating disabled students.
  • The toilets are built is such a way with utmost care and facility is provided.
  • Assistance (Scribe) for examinations.
  • Counselling and skill development trainings.

Following the directive from the state government to completely ban single-use plastics from January 2019, many colleges have already taken steps and some are in the process of finding ways to totally banish plastic from the campus, and also advising students to say no to plastic outside college as well.


Plastic Free Campus is an initiative implemented to reduce pollution in the campus. This initiative inspires students to acquire sustainable values within their lives. To ensure the plastic free environment and reduce the toxic impact of it, SRIET encourages students and faculty members to avoid the use of plastic containers or bags, bottles etc.… and increase the use of reusable products.


Biogas is the mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen (anaerobically), primarily consisting of methane and carbon dioxide.
Salient Features of Our Renewable Energy Plant (2cum Biogas Plant) are

  • Treatment capacity Up to 30kg / day of Food Waste
  • Biogas produced Approx.2 cubic meters of biogas / day which is equivalent to 1kg LPG / Day
  • Organic Manure Generated Approx.300 kg/ month (this can be used for Gardening as well as it can be sold commercially)
  • Water Required Approx. 30Litre / day
  • Space required Approx. 60Sq.Ft
  • Manpower Only 1 operator required for waste loading, general maintenance and cleanliness for 1hours in a day
  •  Power Supply EB incoming power supply with earth (0.55kw)
SRIET encourages and educates staff members as well as students to reduce waste at the campus.

Solid Waste Management
  • Wet and dry wastes are collected by the housekeeping personnel on daily basis
  • In common areas, bins are placed for the collection of waste materials
  • SRIET promotes green initiatives like Plastic Free campus and Swachh Bharath to encourage environment friendly practices
  • Efforts are taken to produce Biogas from Canteen and Hostel wastes
  • Garden waste are converted to manure by adding it to compost pit and decomposed manure will used for gardening in the campus
  • Metals, Glass, Plastic and other Non-biodegradable wastes are handed over to authorized personnel from municipal corporation for disposal or recycling based on the nature of waste

Liquid Waste Management
  • The liquid waste at campus includes Canteen, Hostel, Laundry, Laboratory, Sewage and other effluent waste
  • Sewage treatment plant runs with total design capacity of 75 KLD (kilolitres per day) to treat entire wastewater generated in the campus and to reuse the treated water for non-contact use like gardening. The treated effluent meets the standard for the following parameters like, pH, suspended solids, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Oil and grease

Biomedical Waste Management
  • Biomedical waste from laboratories and other sources are given to the external agencies for proper disposal
  • To facilitate the proper disposal of Sanitary Napkins, Incinerator has been installed.

E- Waste Management
  • The E-wastes includes cartridges, outdated electronic and laboratory devices, etc. are collected and stored in the store room
  • The minor repairs of electronic devices are done by lab assistants and major repairs are outsourced
  • Old Monitors and CPUs are repaired or upgraded and reused
  • UPS and Batteries are recharged, exchanged or buy-back by the suppliers
  • E-wastes are disposed or sold out as scrap to external agencies every year accordingly

The Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM-G) was launched on 2nd October 2014, by Honorable Prime Minister of India – Shri Narendra Modi, with a vision to create “Swachh Bharat” (meaning Clean India) by 2019 as a befitting tribute to Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation, who said that ‘cleanliness is next to Godliness’, on his 150th birth anniversary. The mission aspires to engage everyone in a collective quest for cleaning & making villages, districts, States and eventually India open defecation free and achieve universal cleanliness through Solid and Liquid Waste Management (SLWM) initiatives in the villages of the country. The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation (MDWS) commissioned “Swachh Sarvekshan Grameen-2018” (SSG 2018) through an independent survey agency (Kantar Public) to rank all districts of India on the basis of quantitative and qualitative sanitation (Swachhata) parameters.


Our Institution along with student volunteers, plays an active role in shaping humane and responsible citizenship for our students. The ultimate purpose is to encourage rural community in the improvement of their sanitation status. We have conducted various programmes like

  • Digital Monitoring System (DMS) for (VISAKA)
  • Awareness program on “Health and Hygiene” in various adopted villages.
The entire campus should balance with open space and building density to avoid sprawling crowd. The campus leads the users for various amenities like parking, etc. and we have the impressive traffic flow all around our premises. Markings for walkers, cyclers, car users have been marked which regulates the smooth flow of traffic. They provides ease of access to all blocks and it avoids traffic congestion at intersections.
We, at SRIET, are successfully running a sewage treatment plant of total design capacity of treatment is 75 KLD (kilolitres per day). The purpose is to treat entire wastewater generated in the complex and to reuse the treated water for non-contact use like gardening. The treated effluent will meet the standards for the following parameters like, pH, suspended solids, BOD, COD, Oil and grease.
