Waste Management Crisis in India

India faces a colossal waste management crisis due to lack of efficient waste management solutions, and this creates serious social, health, and environmental issues. As cities continue to urbanise and citizens adopt a more western lifestyle, the crisis only grows.

Several issues contribute to this. The current (road) infrastructure cannot handle the logistics, local banks do not finance projects and incineration, the default technology for most of the current or planned projects is not adequate to process typical Indian waste.

Characteristics of Indian Waste
Municipal solid waste dumped at landfills in India typically consists of the following:

60% organics,
20%–30% combustibles,
10%–20% inert materials like glass, and
a negligible amountof recyclable materials like high-end plastics and metals.
gasification

Incineration Troubles vs Gasification

Indian waste has extremely low calorific value due to high levels of organic matter, which includes mostly waterand inert materials like sand. Sand and water do not combust well. Furthermore, the composition of Indian waste fluctuates dramatically on a day-to-day basis, making incineration even harder to control.

Due to this, waste processing plants struggle to run at 60%–70% of their designed thermal output, and often require additional fuels like Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to be expended. Incinerating Indian waste is like running a car on unrefined oil.

Our Solutions for Waste Management Projects

idea
Fool proof

Indian and African waste are highly heterogenic and fluctuate drastically from day-to-day. Our systems are specifically designed to manage this heterogeneity and treat the two main energy carrying components independently by using a combination of sorting, gasification, and biomethanisation.

modular_icon
Modular

Every sub-system of the plant is modular, thus allowing us to build in phases, never to over-extend, and run a plant even on lower capacity, offering significant financial risk reduction options.

future_prooficon-1
Future proof

The various modules can also be upgraded individually. Three consortia have been formed to tackle the biggest issues head on: ‘Thermal Solutions for combustibles’, ‘Nutrient recovery and power generation for organic fractions’, and ‘Simulation, AI/ML and IIoT implementation’.

Reduced Risks

Our fool proof and modular design strategies are the pillars of our solution that allows us to drastically de-risk our projects, effectively generating an annuity model with steady returns.
