Chandigarh, September 13
Associates Limited, which has installed municipal solid waste (MSW) processing plant at Dadu Majra, has installed a hot-air dryer system to make it an all-weather facility for round-the-year processing.

Rajiv Gaur, president of the Jaiprakash Associates Limited, in a statement issued here, said to make it all-weather proof, a customised hot-air dryer system had been installed at a cost of over Rs 1 crore.

The plant would be running at full capacity in few months, having already started processing more than 100 tons a day.

He added this unique facility in the country was already processing over 100 tons of garbage every day, which was gradually being increased and would be processing nearly 150-200 tons per day by October-November, and would be running at full capacity by December.

Gaur said the group had invested Rs 30 crore on the project and further investment continued to make it a model plant in the country.

The equipment had been imported from Germany, and had been commissioned in the presence of German engineers.

He said in order to contain the unavoidable smell from the garbage, a green belt was being raised along the periphery of the plant.

Arrangements had also been made to spray culture on the garbage to eliminate menace of foul smell, insects, flies, stray animals and vultures.
