Overview of Water Supply, Sewerage; Waste Management & Remediation Activities Sector

Rapid industrialization and population explosion in India has led to the migration of people from villages to cities, which generate thousands of tons of MSW daily. The MSW amount is expected to increase significantly in the near future as the country strives to attain an industrialized nation status by the year 2020. The management of MSW requires proper infrastructure, maintenance and upgrade for all activities. The composition and the quantity of MSW generated form the basis on which the management system needs to be planned, designed and operated. The quantity of MSW generated depends on a number of factors such as food habits, standard of living, degree of commercial activities and seasons.

Growth Estimates and Latest Trends of Water Supply, Sewerage; Waste Management & Remediation Activities Sector in India

The two leading innovative mechanisms of waste disposal being adopted in India include composting (aerobic composting and vermin-composting) and waste to energy (WTE). WTE projects for disposal of MSW are a relatively new concept in India. Incineration is the process of control and complete combustion, for burning solid wastes. It leads to energy recovery and destruction of toxic wastes. The main purpose of the refuse derived fuel (RDF) method is to produce an improved solid fuel or pellets from MSW. In India, many RDF plants are in operation at

Hyderabad, Guntur and Vijaywada in Andhra Pradesh State. Gasification?combustion seems to be promising as it can reduce pollution and increase heat recovery. RDF is another promising technology, which is going to be used for producing power. All these factors put together is only going to increase the job opportunities across towns and cities in India.
