Hyderabad, June 25 (Maxim News): Industries and Municipal Minister KT Rama Rao today inaugurated a treatment plant for building waste at Fathullaguda near Nagole in LB Nagar segment here.
Along with Musi Riverfort Development Corporation Chairman and LB Nagar MLA Sudheer Reddy and officials, the minister started the plant to address building debris and pollution problems in the area.
Speaking on the occasion KTR said that the plan is to start similar plants in near future. The minister disclosed that this plant has 500 mt recycling capacity in addition to one with the same capacity in Jeedimetla area, he said.
With a comprehensive plan we can reuse and recycle such debris and waste of buildings and domestic waste, he stated. Such plants are rare in the country with one each at Delhi and Ahmedabad and Telangana gets a second plant, he said adding that one more will be operational in another six months.
KTR said that a 20 MW power plant was started by using waste and a 28 MW plant will be coming up soon. He appealed to people to cooperate by calling a toll free number 1800-120-1159 by paying a nominal fee to dispose of waste. Daily we get about 7000 metric tons of building waste and we need to shift it to reuse in a scientific approach, he asserted.
We are taking steps to produce power from dry waste and manufacture fertilizers using wet waste, the minister said. He sought cooperation of local people, builders and those in construction activities to address these issues.
Last year LB Nagar and other areas faced inundation due to heavy rains and clogging waters on the roads. We took steps to address this issue which caused much inconvenience, he said. (Maxim News)
