HYDERABAD: Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) lauched its 2nd Construction and Demolition Recycling (CD) facility in Hyderabad at Fathullaguda, Hayathnagar.
This facility is the first of its kind, which uses wet processing technology to minimse dust pollution. The plant can process up to 500 TPD of construction and demolition waste.
Goutham Reddy, MD & CEO, Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited, said, “Rapid urbanization coupled with the unprecedented growth of cities and towns in the last two decades led to the generation of a lot of C&D waste. Construction and Demolition Waste Management has been our focus in line with our sustainable goals. We are delighted to partner with GHMC to launch the 2nd Construction and Demolition Recycling Facility in Hyderabad. It is a challenging task to manage C&D waste. The waste material generated during the construction, renovation, and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges is complex. We have used innovative Wet Process technology to manage the pollution. Ramky is proud to be part of this project which is capable of recycling more than 95% of the incoming debris. I would like to thank the government once again for taking such an initiative towards a sustainable and green city.”
Speaking at the inauguration, K. Taraka Rama Rao (Hon’ble Minister for MA&UD, Industries, and IT & C) said, “I am happy to announce that Hyderabad is the first city in South India to have the 2nd Construction and Demolition facility. We will soon have two more C&D plants coming up in the other locations of the city to cover the entire city with a capacity of 2000 tons per day. It is happy to note that almost all of the waste received at this plant and the earlier constructed plan is converting the debris into good quality construction material.
We are also happy to introduce a toll-free number service for pick and drop (toll free number 18001201159) of the C&D waste which will be managed by GHMC. We appreciate the efforts made by Ramky Enviro in driving this initiative to maintain clean and green environment friendly, pollution free city for the generations to come.”
The plant can process up to 500 TPD of C&D Waste with a specialized segregation system, debris handling system, multiple screening systems, material washing, sand washing and water management system. The plant at Fathullaguda is among the largest facilities in South India. The plant will operate under a public-private partnership model with Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).
Various recycled products from the C&D waste generated at this facility are utilized for non-structural purposes such as footpaths, road sub-base, etc. About 15.26 Lakh, MT of C&D waste, has been collected from April 2018, with 7.97 lakh MT collected at the Jeedimetla facility and 5.38 lakh MT collected at Fathullaguda.
