New technology to handle solid waste in Kolar

New technology to handle solid waste in Kolar

Talking to the Deccan Herald,V Mohan Kumar, CMC Environmental Executive Engineer, who had recently returned after finishing study tour in Karwar about solid waste management, said that  Council had sent a proposal demanding 25 acres of land near Varadenahalli-Mittagallahalli to handle the City’s solid waste.

In Karwar Dolphy method is followed, which involves the old model of solid waste purification plant. In this method, garbage which is segregated will be collected in a place and sand layers will be built on them.

Employing new technology in garbage treatment will provide more benefits such as increased income, preparation of compost manure from garbage, recycling of plastic and and other waste products to produce energy etc.

By adopting such methods, we can handle solid waste and also generate income at the same time, Mohan added.

We can produce power by passing purified wastes through gas chamber and save power. Mohan said, “In Karwar, only five acres of land has been allotted for the garbage treatment plant instead of the 25 acres of land that we demanded. If we are provided with vacant land treating solid waste trough new technology becomes an easy task for us.”

25 acres of land

Proposal seeking 25 acres of land for the construction of waste treatment plant has been submitted six months ago. In the six months time, survey has been conducted twice.
The office of the Deputy Commissioner should consider this matter seriously and should take appropriate action, he added.
