The 237th meeting of the State Environment Assessment Committee (SEAC) will be held here on October 12 and 13.

The Committee among other agendas would review environment clearance proposals for major minerals mining and industrial projects, official sources informed.

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

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

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

It may also be recalled that the Raipur Municipal Corporation (RMC) would soon be setting up an Organic Waste Converter ( OWC ) for conversion of organic waste generated 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 last month, the Chhattisgarh Government decided to establish composite production unit in vegetable markets of cities across the State for manufacturing organic fertilizer using fruits and vegetables.
