The Kerala Pollution Control Board (PCB) is planning to conduct a detailed study on the waste treatment plants across the country with the objective of identifying effective models that could be adopted for the city.
The PCB team will visit a number of successfully run solid waste treatment plants in Mysore, Pune, Delhi and UP, soon.
PCB authorities said that the main aim of the study is to find out positive aspects of successful plants. “We will be preparing a detailed report on our findings so that we can adopt at least some of them in our future waste treatment projects,” said PCB chairman K. Sajeevan.
He said that waste management could have been handled in a better way if the municipal solid waste management rules had been complied with. “Burying and burning waste is totally unscientific.
An effective mechanism should be introduced soon to manage waste, or else, the situation may become grave with the onset of monsoon,” Sajeevan said.
Meanwhile, SIDCO, on April 9, is gearing up to open the financial bid for importing mobile incinerator units.
“If everything goes as planned we will announce the name of the company the same day. We cannot take a decision in a hurry as we don’t have any prior experience. A detailed presentation would be held on the occasion,” said Suchitwa Mission executive director, George Chakkacherry.
