Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation today announced the launch of a new Construction & Demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant in Jeedimetla, Hyderabad.
Ramky Enviro Engineers Ltd (REEL), a KKR-backed company, is a provider of comprehensive environment management services. REEL offers a whole gamut of environmental services and infrastructure solutions under various categories such as Waste Management, Waste to Energy; Recycling, and Environmental Solutions such as remediation, ETPs and wastewater treatment. The Jeedimetla plant is another step in the company’s CSR efforts to help address the low C&D waste recycling rate of the country.
The Jeedimetla C&D waste recycling plant is a processing facility fully equipped to handle the collection, transportation, processing and management of C&D waste generated in and around Hyderabad. The plant has the capacity to process up to 500 tonnes of C&D waste for recycling per day. It will operate under a public-private partnership model.
Goutham Reddy, MD & CEO, Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited, said: “This new C&D plant, equipped with a processing capacity to handle up to 500 tonnes of waste, will help the city build up its waste recycling capabilities to address the long-standing issue of construction debris dumping on roadsides, open plots, and other places. While it will be a relief to the city which will clear roadside heaps and heaps in parks and open places in the city, it is able to recycle and recover more than 90% of the materials collected. We are proud to partner with GHMC in inaugurating this plant for the city of Hyderabad.”
Recent research by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) reveals that India only manages to recover and recycle about 1% of its C&D waste. “To improve C&D waste recycling and management in India, our country and its cities will need many more such facilities. Ramky Enviro is committed to working with our partners and the authorities to launch similar plants across the country with the aligned objective of building a clean and green environment with high standards of liveability for generations to come,” Reddy added.
