Mass burning, indiscriminate dumping and unscientific landfilling are the common methods of disposal of municipal wastes practiced in Indian Cities causing undesirable environmental and health impacts. Waste can be disposed in several ways and what best than it being reused as Energy rather than being dumped in forests, third world countries or over filled land dumps. ZIPL has guided Municipalities to recognize the ill-effects of such methods practiced in the country and to implement the eco-friendly and affordable solutions for the disposal of wastes.

ZIPL recommends advanced incineration, more appropriately known as Controlled Combustion Technology (CCT) to be the apt solution for Indian conditions. The benefits of this technology include the following:

  • A proven technology operating on a commercial scale worldwide and on modular basis.
  • An elaborate sorting of wastes is not mandatory, except that removal of recyclables such as glass and metals; and inert materials such as stones which do not contribute to the energy content of the waste is recommended.
  • Can generally handle MSW without pre-treatment on an as received basis including large variations in waste composition and calorific value.
  • Considerably reduces the volume of waste and left over inert and non-bio gradable materials are disposed for landfill.
  • The process meets the stringent environmental norms and emission standards.
  • Filter system provided downstream is used to trap the fly ash.
  • Exit flue gas is finally dispersed to atmosphere through tall stack designed to meet pollution control norms.
  • CCT produces 500-520 kWh energy on an average from one tonne of MSW compared to 20 kWh generated by landfill process
