Solid Waste Management Facility In Baddi Area Soon



The Baddi Barotiwala Nalagarh Development Authority (BBNDA) will soon sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Mumbai-based Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) for setting up an integrated solid waste management facility at Kenduwal in the Baddi industrial area. Rajiv Kumar, Chief Executive Officer, BBNDA, said the facility would be set up using the Centre’s NISARGRUNA technology, a waste management technology, and eight months would be granted to accomplish the task.

Waste management is a big deal, not only to make sure waste is disposed of properly but also so it has the least significant impact on the local community and the environment as possible. Poor waste management could lead to littering, damaged green spaces and unhealthy habitats for wildlife. Many countries, like Australia, for example, have already implemented these waste management programs and have seen waste now be disposed of more responsibly. Homeowners can even look for the skip bins for hire sydney has on offer to have large amounts of waste removed from their homes or worksites. Perhaps that’s the next step for this waste management facility.

While both agencies will supervise the work, the BBNDA will make available a minimum area of 4,000 sq m for the construction of the facility, installation and operation. A concrete approach road will also be provided by the authority for the plant.

The BBNDA will be entrusted with the task of transporting the waste on a daily basis from the generation point to the plant site. Segregated waste of 5 metric tonne will be processed in the facility and the segregated non-biodegradable waste will be suitably disposed in a temporary dumping facility, which the authority would utilise till the dry waste management becomes operational. Recycling of waste would be given priority till the dry waste management is installed as per the terms of the memorandum.

The fertiliser and gas generated by the facility will be utilised by the authority for electricity generation and the fertiliser can be sold to an external agency. Safety will be a top priority at the facility, as a significant amount of gas is expected to be produced, stored, handled, and transported around the site.

For example, when moving any gas cylinders, a Storemasta gas bottle trolley or a similar mode of transport will need to be used to guarantee that the cylinders remain in an upright manner. Moreover, throughout this process, the gas cylinders must also be securely restrained so that any valves are not damaged or exposed as this can lead to leakages.

Additionally, the authority can sell the electricity produced to the government or any other agency. The by-product of the plastic waste will also be sold by the authority to an appropriate authority.

The authority, which is spread across 41 panchayats, is the first urban body to adopt this scientific technology in this industrial belt. It will help putting in place a clean technology for waste disposal.The Principal Secretary, Industries, has directed the authority to ensure the financial viability of the project. He said the law department had accorded its clearance for it.
