Waste to Energy: Three ULBs to Join Hands

Yesterday, I went to Poura Bhavan at Bidhannagar and saw a presentation on Zero Waste Technology that could be useful for Salt Lake, Nabadiganta and New Town. All three Urban Local Bodies dispose their Solid Waste at a site popularly known as Mollar Bhery. There is no segregation of wastes and slowly the site is getting saturated. The presentation showed a patented technology already in use in some ULBs of Tamil Nadu and claimed to give an end-to-end solution.  Mayor Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation Mr Sabyasachi Datta and me agreed to join hands through an MoU or otherwise. I also mentioned to Mayor BMC that I may make a proposal, if he agrees, for JICA assistance for Solid Waste Management for end-to-end solution not only at landfill site but also for an efficient intelligent transportation and collection process. He agreed.

The team from Chennai was taken on a tour of Mollar Bhery dumping site. They would revert later with their specific views that would be put up to technical scrutiny.
