The twin cities of Haridwar – Rishikesh have got their first fuel- free solid waste disposal system with its inauguration by the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in Parmarth Niketan on the occasion of Army Day on Monday. Rawat said that the technology known as Waste to Wealth Technology can prove a boon for the people as it reduces the mounting trash to eco-friendly ash which can be used as a fertilizer. “The machine can convert one quintal of waste in one hour to four kg of ash. This is a step ahead towards a pollution- free and trash- free Uttarakhand as envisioned by us. Parmarth Niketan has initiated the movement. We would test its efficacy on the ground and then the state government would also install it in various departments,” CM said.
Swami Chidanand Saraswati of the Global Interfaith Wash Alliance said that the outfit has been working hard to bring such green technologies to the forefront to help effectively deal with the mounting pollution in the air, water and soil.
“The kill waste machine installed here would send a message of converting waste to wealth to millions of pilgrims coming here from across the country and the world all the year round. They would get inspired to try the same and bring about a solution to the grim problem of mounting trash,” said the seer.
The ashram sources said that the kill waste solid waste system is different from the conventional incinerators in that it requires minimum investment and needs no fuel. Besides, it has no maintenance cost and does not require technicians, sources said, adding that the machine effectively disposes of dry and wet waste without leaving any harmful gas. The output of kill waste is neutral ash which is neutralised by activated charcoal and manure is churned out of the process.
