Zero Waste Project at New Moti Bagh
Zero Waste Project at GPRA Complex, New Moti Bagh, New Delhi is a unique model of decentralized Solid Waste Management with the support of Ministry of Urban Development, Govt. of India and National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC). GPRA Complex in New Moti Bagh is a 110 Acres complex with over 1000 families residing in the complex. The average waste treated at the complex is 1.5 tons of household and 1 ton of green & horticultural waste everyday. Waste comprises of dry household waste, wet kitchen waste and green & horticultural waste. The waste is collected and brought to the segregation site from where the organic, green and plastic segregated waste is treated at the plant. The other dry waste is stored and sent for recycling to the respective recycling plants. The resultant product from organic waste treatment is organic fertilizer (organic khad) and from green waste we produce biomass pellets. Plastic Waste is treated to produce Low Density Oil (LDO), Carbon and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG). LDO can be further refined to a better quality fuel like Petrol & Diesel.
