Assam entrepreneurs signed pact on waste management

Jun 26, 2015 15:00 IST

Two local entrepreneurs, namely Satyaki Saikia and Pulak Roy, in fourth week of June 2015 signed agreements with several civic bodies in Assam to do away with the plastic hazards under a solid-waste management project.

Basic objective of the project is to save society from hazards and pollution created by the huge amount of increasing municipality solid waste.

Features of the project
• These would minimise the waste produced in the urban areas and convert them to useful products like bio-manure and bricks.
• Plastic part of waste will be converted and used to manufacture Reinforced Thermoplastic Composite Board (RTCB), which is a perfect replacement for wood and largely used for making shutters, furniture and doors
• The biodegradable part will be converted into bio-manure, which has a great demand in agricultural sector

To manage wastes, they have acquired technology from Calcutta-based SKC Group of Companies. At present, the technology is being used in states like Odisha, Bengal and Bihar.  

Each of these project will cost around 20 – 30 crore rupees which would be sponsored by the Union Government.
