Rising awareness of the importance of waste management in environmental health is compelling governments to adopt new measures to bring about the much needed procedural overhaul. Indian government has been working to make its Swachh Bharat initiative a success. However, there are several stumbling blocks in its way. Lack of efficient infrastructure is leading to poor waste management in the country. Landfill is currently the most popular method of waste disposal in India, with more than 50 per cent of the total solid waste generated being untreated and dumped into landfills.
In the country, close to 62 million tons of waste is generated on an annual basis which is expected to increase by two times by 2030. Hence, there is an urgent need to develop adequate treatment and recycling strategies as per the Indian solid waste composition. As only 30 per cent of the 75 per cent recyclable waste is being recycled currently, Indian waste management industry offers huge potential. This reflects in a recent market research that says the amount of Indian garbage being produced will offer a business opportunity of 14 billion USD by 2025 for the waste treatment industry.
Making matters worse, the Covid-19 outbreak has posed significant challenges with the generation, collection, treatment, and disposal of waste. One of the direct consequences of the pandemic has been the exponential increase in the production of biomedical waste. Addressing these issues not only requires experience but technology acumen as well. Only by combining both can innovative methodologies be developed that can actually work in the Indian scenario.
