Case Study – Indore:

About 100 tonnes of construction and demolition waste generated daily in the city will now be used for making bricks, pavers block and garden chairs among many products.

In a first of its kind, a processing facility to treat waste generated from construction and demolition sites is likely to be operational from November.

Ahmedabad-based agency has bagged the tender for setting up the facility at Devguradia. The plant will be set up on public-private partnership (PPP) and Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) will provide land to the agency and tipping fee.

IMC’s waste management consultant Asad Warsi said, “This will be the first plant in the state to process debris into useful green products. There is no such facility anywhere in the state and the processing plant will help in making a clean environment.”

IMC will provide about 75 tonnes of construction and demolition waste to the processing facility every day. The plant will be set up on 4 acres of land at Devguradia. IMC had received tenders from 4 agencies for setting up the facility.

Warsi said, “All the paper formalities are almost completed and work order will be issued in a fortnight to the company. The facility is expected to be operational by November.” Corporation will collect debris from various construction and demolition sites falling within the IMC limits and the same will be delivered at the processing plant.
