Work launched on waste management facility

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in association with Switzerland-based Satarem India on Monday laid the foundation for the Integrated Waste Management Facility ( IWMF) in the City. 

The project taken up under public-private partnership entails Satarem installing the City's first IWMF on Nelamangala-Hassan Road. The total cost of the plant is close to Rs 300 crore. 

Venkatesh Sivaraman, Executive Director, Satarem India, said that it would take at least two years to complete the work.


“It will have a capacity to handle 500 tonnes of waste a day, once operational. The waste management will be implemented in three phases. The first phase includes waste receipt, segregation, compost and landfill facility. Waste to energy will be taken up in phase II with an installed capacity of 14.5MW. Additional installed power generation capacity of 14.5MW will be taken up in Phase III,” he said.

Mayor B S Satyanarayana who spoke on the occasion expressed disappointment over the delay on the part of the government and other authorities in approving waste management projects of Palike. 

He said the authorities concerned sat on the proposal on the waste unit for a long time. “They kept us waiting for the last four months. I never got the opportunity to talk with the officials concerned,” the Mayor said. 

He further added that a waste processing plant by a German company would come up near Mandur.
