Soon, Ludhiana to begin bioremediation of legacy waste

After facing the National Green Tribunal’s (NGT) wrath over poor solid waste management in the city, the Ludhiana Municipal Corporation (MC) is finally expected to begin the process of disposing off around 25 lakh metric tonnes (MT) of legacy waste accumulated at its main dump site on the Tajpur road through bioremediation process.

After the MC allotted the contract to dispose of 5 lakh MT of waste in the first phase at a cost of over Rs 28 crore under the Smart City Mission, the machinery for bioremediation of waste has reached the dump site and the work is expected to commence in a week or so.

The project has been allotted to a Maharashtra-based firm and the stipulated time period to dispose of 5 lakh metric tonnes of garbage is 18 months, including the transportation period of the machinery.

As per MC officials, the contractor will dispose of all the waste and clear the land for the MC. It will be his responsibility to take care of whatever material is recovered from the site including refuse-derived fuel (RDF), construction and demolition waste, etc.

MC commissioner Shena Aggarwal stated that the contractor is setting up the machinery and a few trials have to be done. It is expected that the bioremediation process will commence this week.
