Largest solid waste processing plant commissioned in Chhattisgarh
The project is implemented by the Delhi MSW Solutions
The Chhattisgarh government has commissioned its biggest solid waste processing plant on 24 June 2020 near Raipur.
The project is implemented by the Delhi MSW Solutions (DMSWSL), a subsidiary of Hyderabad-based Ramky Enviro Engineers. The company had inked a 15-year deal with the Raipur Municipal Corporation (RMC).
The plant which was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Chhattisgrah Bhupesh Baghel was built with an investment of Rs 127 crore. The total input cost of the project is Rs 197 crore.
The plant has a capacity of managing 500 tonne of waste per day using scientific techniques. The waste will be used to manufacture fertilisers and fuel for cement units. Production of six MW electricity is also proposed in the project that will be run on public private partnership (PPP) model.
Under the agreement, the company will ensure door-to-door collection of waste from each household and commercial centres besides its transportation, processing and disposal. A 67 acre land has been allotted to the company on lease agreement.
In this processing plant, two trammels of 75 mm, two trammels of 25 mm and two trammels of four mm have been installed. The waste collected will be separated using trammel and lift machine, and dry waste of more than 75 mm will be converted into refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and sent to cement factories.
The wet waste will be processed in 25 mm and four mm trammels to make fertiliser the end product. It will be sold to fertiliser companies.
