Solid Waste

With the ever increasing population and urbanization, the waste management has emerged as a huge challenge in the country.

About 62 million tonnes of waste is generated annually in the country, of which 5.6 million tonnes is plastic waste, 0.17 million tonnes is biomedical waste, hazardous waste generation is 7.90 million tonnes per annum and 15 lakh tonne is e-waste. The per capita waste generation in Indian cities ranges from 200 grams to 600 grams per day. According to the environment ministry data, about 43 million TPA is collected, 11.9 million is treated and 31 million is dumped in landfill sites, which means that only about 75-80 per cent of the municipal waste gets collected and only 22-28 per cent of this waste is processed and treated. To make it worse, waste generation is projected to increase from 62 million tonnes to about 165 million tonnes in 2030.

Industrial Waste

The quantum of industrial waste generation is also on a higher side. More than 8 million tons per annum is India’s present hazardous waste generation. Maharashtra (22.84%), Gujarat (22.68%) and Telangana and Andhra Pradesh put together (13.75%) are leading states in the country in hazardous waste generation, followed by Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Just these seven states, contribute to nearly 82% of the hazardous waste generated in the country.

However, it has been estimated that there is a good potential for power generation (about 225 MW from all sewage and about 1500 MW from Municipal Solid Waste), of about 1700 MW. Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) estimates indicate that India has so far realized only about 2% of its waste-to-energy potential. As per MoUD, Govt. of India has set a target of generating 700 MW energy from waste by 2019 (Feb 2016 notification).

E-Waste

Recently there are increased concerns on E-waste. The current e-waste generation pattern is 1.7 million tons / annum, with an alarming growth rate of 15% each year. The major concern in terms of management of e-waste is, more than 90% of the available E-waste continued to be recycled in the informal sector, in the by-lanes of cities and towns. However, if recycled scientifically, 95-98% of the materials can be recovered and put back in the process of material flow.

National Biogas Mission

Waste Management Market is expected to be worth around US $ 13.62 billion by 2025. Indian Municipal Waste management market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.14 % by 2025 while the e-waste management market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.03% during the same period.

Growth Drivers

The quantum of industrial waste generation is also on a higher side. More than 8 million tons per annum is India’s present hazardous waste generation. Maharashtra (22.84%), Gujarat (22.68%) and Telangana and Andhra Pradesh put together (13.75%) are leading states in the country in hazardous waste generation, followed by Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Just these seven states, contribute to nearly 82% of the hazardous waste generated in the country.

Focus areas of the initiative are clean drinking water, solving the issue of open defecation, proper sanitation & drainage systems and clean surroundings to name a few. Each of these areas provides a great business opportunity for businesses.

The Government of India is promoting all the Technology Options available for setting up projects for recovery of energy from urban wastes.

The Smart Cities Mission is an innovative and new initiative by the Government of India to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people by enabling local development and harnessing technology as a means to create smart outcomes for citizens. The Mission will cover 100 cities and its duration will be five years (FY2015-16 to FY2019-20).

To facilitate e-waste management in the country, the government is implementing a scheme under which financial assistance is provided for awareness and capacity building activities relating to e-waste management. The electronics recycling business is becoming increasingly important as volumes of e-waste continue to grow, setting the stage for the growth of that industry.

Considering the above, Waste & Recycling Expo 2017 offers an opportunity to display and launch your latest products and services to decision makers under one roof. In addition to your exceptional display of innovative products, Waste& Recycling Expo 2017 will host of variety of networking opportunities.
