Waste and the city: What I learnt at the Venkatamangalam composting yard
Only 25% of the waste generated in the city is treated and rest is added to the landfills. Even when the waste is segregated, there are legitimate concerns about subsequent utilisation and processing of the segregated waste.
The energy conversion plant at Venkatamangalam can process 300 MT waste, converts organic waste into compost and sells the non-biodegradable waste tp cement factories to produce Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF).
