Gurgaon Waste Plant to use Hazardous Technology

Written By Gopal Krishna on Wednesday, September 24, 2008 | 12:26 AM

Contrary to the recommendations of the Prime Minister’s National Action Plan on Climate Change that supports only Biomethanation Technology for electricity from waste, approval given to it by the ministry of environment and forests and the Pollution Control Board to the proposed Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) facility for Bandwari village, Gurgaon is fraught with adverse environment and health consequences.

The MSW facility with waste recycling plant is planned at a 30-acre site in Bandwari village at Gurgaon-Faridabad road. The reason for the harm to residents comes from the waste recycling plant based on refuge derived fuel (RDF) that is also proposed with the MSW facility. Incineration of RDF emits pollutants that have intergeneration effects.

The proposed facility aims to use about 400 metric ton solid waste everyday that is generated in Gurgaon. The residents produce 375 gram of waste per capita per day.
It appears that Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon, in conjunction with Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has kept the residents in dark.
