State Government to set up Bio-Methanation Plants

| | Raipur | in Raipur

The State Government will get prepared city-wise Detailed Project Report (DPR) for  setting up Bio-Methanation Plants in three zones of the State.

Notanly, the State Urban Development Agency (SUDA) in Chhattisgarh is in the process of preparing a Master Plan for implementation of Solid Waste Management Project in all the 168 Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) of Chhattisgarh, officials informed.

SUDA will also get a feasibility study and Detailed Project Report (DPR) prepared for all ULBs in the State .

Meanwhile , it may be recalled that top brains currently being nurtured in the country’s premier business and technology schools will soon get assignments to prepare urban development plans for civic bodies in Chhattisgarh.

The Chhattisgarh Urban Administration and Development Department had also decided to invite interns comprising mainly students and researchers from renowned institutions like IITs and IIMs who would help in preparing better plans for management of water supply, low cost housing, seweragemanagement, solid waste management, poverty eradication, study of various State and Central schemes related to vehicular traffic managementin urban areas.

Moreover, as per official information released during May this year, under the AMRUT Mission the nine municipal corporations- Raipur, Bilaspur, Durg, Bhilai, Korba, Rajnandgaon, Raigarh, Jagdalpur and Ambikapur- have been selected wherein ‘Shahar Sandhan Yojna’ (City Research Scheme) will be launched.

The scheme is aimed at utilising the educational knowledge of students and researchers in better development of cities, officials said.

The State Urban Administration and Development Authority has already issued directives to all nine Municipal Corporations in this regard.

The students in final year of graduation or post graduation studying Engineering, Management, Town Planning, Environment, Technology or Social Studies will be eligible for carrying out the studies. The research scholars can also take part in the studies in various municipal corporations.

Notably, the Raipur Municipal Corporation (RMC) is setting up an Organic Waste Converter ( OWC ) for conversion of organic wastegenerated daily in the vegetable markets in the city. The waste collected would be converted into organic manure.

Notably, 100 per cent door-to-door collection and waste segregation would be taken up as per RMC’s ‘Smart City’ plans.

It may be recalled that  Chhattisgarh Government had decided last year to establish composite production unit in vegetable markets of cities across the State for manufacturing organic fertilizer using fruits and vegetables.

SUDA has issued directives to all 168 urban bodies to send information about the vegetable markets in respective areas, where significant amount of fruit-vegetable waste is found.

Commissioners of Municipal Corporations and Chief Municipal Officers of Municipal Councils and Nagar Panchayats have been instructed to send information within three days.

It is noteworthy that Agriculture Department will set up composite production units in market.

The Chhattisgarh Government is also mulling over plans to mobilise additional financial resources through 14th Finance Commission recommendations for implementation of the AMRUT project in nine cities of Chhattisgarh, officials stated.

The action plan drawn up by the government has already prioritised proposed investment across cities as per principle of prioritisation of AMRUT. Investment had been broadly distributed across nine AMRUT cities. Distribution of Investment is based on priority for providing 100 per cent universal coverage in primary thrust sectors.

Overall the Mission Thrust areas under AMRUT Project would be — Water supply, Sewerage and Septage Management, Storm Water Drain, Pedestrian, Non Motorised and Public Transport Facilities, Parking Space, Green Spaces, Park and Recreation centres.

It may be recalled that for quick disposal of solid waste, which has remained a challenge, the Chhattisgarh government has also sought help from Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC), Mumbai.

Under the ‘Mission Clean City’, for studying the quick compost making process, a team of officers from State Urban Development Authority (SUDA) recently visited BARC, officials informed.

Notably, BARC which is a premier multi-disciplinary Nuclear Research Centre of India, has successfully carried out numerous research related to compost production from solid waste.  

This premier institution has carried out research in producing electricity from waste, CNG and cooking gas from garbage.

SUDA officials informed that a team of scientists from BARC will soon visit Raipur and will give a presentation to top administrative officials in this regard.

Notably, State Government has covered 158 towns under the Mission Clean City under which door-to-door garbage collection will be performed.  

According to officials, the wet and dry garbage are separated and treated accordingly. Then compost is produced from the wet garbage while drywaste is sent for recycling purpose.
