Hazardous waste is an up-front evil against the world
The generation of toxic and hazardous waste is an integral component of development. Human activity generates large volumes of wastes every day. A significant percentage of these wastes is toxic and inevitably finds its way to the soil, water, plants and finally through the food chain into biological systems where they accumulate and concentrate to alarming levels. When this happens, containment of hazardous wastes becomes necessary. Managing hazardous wastes would mean stopping this chain of contamination from initiating –preventing the waste from polluting the soil and the water table nearby the disposal facility and the landfill.
Hazardous wastes may be detrimental to both human health and day to day human life. Components of hazardous waste can be carcinogenic, teratogenic, corrosive, flammable, explosive and/ or releasing toxic fumes. The industries / government need technically feasible and sustainable solutions for the management of hazardous waste generated.
At GEPIL, we offer complete solutions: Reuse, recycle, recovery, treatment and disposal of Hazardous Waste.
Our I.C.H.W.M.F (Integrated Common Hazardous Waste Management Facility) is a community based approach for the treatment, storage & disposal of Hazardous Wastes generated by the cluster of Industries in the region. Our facility enrolls all the hazardous waste generating industries as its members, collects the wastes from them, transports the same to the facility, based on their characteristics in environmentally safe manner and as per the regulatory requirements. This is in accordance with the Hazardous Waste (Management & Handling) rules 1989 & maintaining other amendments under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1986.
Accepting HW for Treatment and Disposal at our common facilities
Our HWM (Hazardous Waste Management) service offers complete solutions: Reuse, recycle, recovery, treatment and disposal of Hazardous Waste. We accept HW for treatment and disposal at our common facilities where we have a secured Landfill, provide incineration of Toxic HW, and solidification and stabilization of heavy metal bearing waste.
We accept HW for fuel generation from alternative sources at our facilities.
We also provide facilities for disposal of drugs, narcotics, agro chemicals & other FMCG products.
Turnkey Solutions at the GEPIL site include:
- Secured Landfill
- Waste to energy Incineration
- HW recovery plants
- Waste based power plants
Alternate Fuel Preparation
Rising prices and difficulty in procuring fossil fuels make the generation of alternate fuel generation an immediate requirement.
Need for Co processing: Large amount of organic toxic wastes generation, lack of adequate treatment and disposal infrastructure, high costs of incineration make co processing an exigent necessity.
We are capable of co-processing hazardous waste and raw materials in cement plants with the purpose of alternate fuel generation and energy and resource recovery. This ensures complete destruction of wastes and utilization of energy preventing wastage of energy and resources in any form. Our processes are well established, technically proven and legally approved.
Promoted by MoEF and CPCB, trials conducted by GEPIL are approved and permission granted by CPCB, GPCB and CECB. Some benefits and unique features of our fuel regeneration and energy recovery technique include:
- a. Favorable process conditions in cement kiln ensure complete destruction and absorption of gases
- b. Uniform temperature range > 1400⁰C
- c. Residence time > 6 secs
- d. Alkaline conditions facilitating neutralization
- e. Eliminates incineration ash for landfilling
- f. Negative pressure with effective dust control systems
- g. No external power, fuel, chemicals
- h. High Thermal Inertia ensures steady process conditions
- i. The total waste envisaged to be Handled to the tune of 50,000 TPA
- j. A “Pollution Free” Project.
- k. No waste water discharge
- l. Air emissions only from vents, shall be adsorbed in Activated carbon
- m. Solid Residues sent to existing TSDF
