Technologies for Solid Waste Management

Waste to Energy Technology is an absolutely essential aspect of Solid Waste (Kitchen waste, wood, Biomedical, Electronic/plastic waste…) Management. Handling SW is not only to follow the Rules, but it is also the need of all Indian Metro cities to manage its daily waste with scientific approach. Renowned speakers from India and abroad shall deliberate on how to produce energy from the waste, different facets of technology and Financial viability of establishing energy plants. International experience shows that WtE is a profitable business in relation to energy and health. Indian Metro Cities produce nearly 2 lakhs tons MSW per day but we are not yet equipped to deal with it. The developed countries altogether have solved this problem and there are over 2000WtE plants all over the World and less than 5 in India.

Waste Management ( E-waste, Plastic, Biomedical and hazardous): Rules, Regulations and Solutions

The Government of India has been consistently issuing Regulations from the year 2000 for Municipal Waste Management. Not having achieved any major success, Govt. has issued new Rules in the year 2016 with the directives inclusive of all aspects of MSW Management i.e. handling, transport, storage, conversion, and recycle/reuse. Management of solid waste is a complicated issue with many difficulties. The experts speaking in this Session shall deal with SW Management with an integrated approach, not only for waste management but also of manufacturing by-products, recycle and reuse from the waste materials.

Sewage and Industrial Waste Water Treatment: Recycling and Reuse

With the Global Warming and indiscriminate use of water in India, there is continuous ground water depletion. The monsoon in India is also unpredictable, adding to the problems of water management. In addition, rapid urbanization is making it more difficult to enhance the catchment areas for augmenting daily water needs of the cities and industries.. The current infrastructure and development have now proved it beyond doubt that there are very safe and profiting technologies for waste water recycling and reuse and the goal is achievable. This shall not only the step for environmental conservation but also for integrated industrial and drinking water supply and agricultural management. The experts shall deal with the state of the art of technology for establishment of these infrastructures.

Waste to Energy in Circular Economy, Management, Financial facilitation

It is often felt that the Waste to Energy (WtE) plants are not profit making and they are unmanageable. It is true that there are difficulties of getting financial support and dealing l with banking& tendering processes and operations. The calculations of potential energy of the waste and output of energy indicate that over the time the plants do become viable. It is to be also learnt along with production of energy and various by-products out of segregated waste materials. The experts in banking and energy marketing sector shall share their knowledge in this session.
