WHY WE PROPOSED WASTE MANAGEMENT
The Proposed Waste to Energy
Power Plant would Relieve from the Hazardous Consequences of Domestic Waste Management
- Domestic wastes normally generate as a consequence of household consumption and
various activities such as the cleaning, cooking, repairing empty containers,
packaging, huge use of plastic carry bags etc. Many times these waste gets
mixed-up with other wastes too.
- There is no system of scientific collection, sorting and segregation of organic,
inorganic and recyclable wastes at household level.
- Door-to-door collection is practiced in a most unhealthy way and the community
collection bins are poorly managed and are usually no more than open dumps on
the roadside by the collectors for sorting, segregating and dumping.
- The lack of scientific handling, management and utilization of Domestic Waste
from households are causing adverse effect on the public at large and this
deteriorates the surrounding ecology, environment and biodiversity as well as
residential environment to a greater extent.
- The challenge of Domestic Waste management and utilization is now drawing
increasing attention of the policy makers and planners as huge garbage is lying
down in a most haphazard way beside the roads, streets, drains, cannels,
footpaths, riverside, dustbins and on the ground which is causing threat to the
physical environment as well as endangering public health.
The Proposed Project would able to
minimize the most harmful effects of Medical Wastes.
- Medical waste is generated from biological and medical sources and activities,
such as the diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of diseases.
- Medical waste or bio-hazardous wastes are even more dangerous to the general
public. This is because medical waste items include materials such as bodily
fluids, tissues and sharps that can cause disease.
- Medical waste also includes potentially contaminated needles, scalpels, lancets
and other devices capable of penetrating skin. The solid wastes are also emerge
during production of medicine. Harmful hospital wastes composed of waste group
of infectious, pathological, cutter-piercing, gene toxic, pharmaceutical,
chemical, heavy metal and radioactive waste.
- Because of the hospital waste; hospital staff, clinical waste carriers and
people are at risk, also the wastes cause hepatitis A-B-C, AIDS, typhoid,
bronchitis, anthrax, infection diseases and allergy etc. The adverse effects of
the medical wastes on the environment, including mostly human, animal and fish
health are beyond narration.
- In response to this growing problem, the proposed, ‘Waste to Energy Power Plant’
would be quite effective in utilizing the medical waste in generation the
electric power and also able to minimize the negative and adverse impacts of
medical wastes, hazards and the residues of all.
The Proposed, ‘Waste to Energy Power
Plant’ would able to minimize the Industrial pollution and hazards.
- The effects of industrial pollution are far-reaching and liable to affect the
ecosystem for many years to come. Most industries require large amounts of water
for their work. When involved in a series of processes, the water comes into
contact with heavy metals, harmful chemicals, radioactive waste, and even
- Industrial effluents aggravate soil pollution to a greater extent and destroy
the top soil fertility, agricultural production, local vegetation, standing
crops, etc. It also causes chronic health issues to the people that come in
contact with such soil on a daily basis.
- Industrial effluents also create severe air pollution that lead to a steep
increase in various illnesses and it continues to affect us on a daily basis.
With so many small, mid and large scale industries, locally, air pollution has
taken the toll on the health of the people and the environment.
The Proposed, ‘Waste to Energy Power
Plant’ would able to minimize the plastic hazards.
- All the used plastic bags, bottles and other objects eventually end up in
canals, water reservoirs and drain. After some time, they become partially or
completely clogged and can’t deal with a huge surge of water, thus increasing
risks of causing great material damage and even losing lives.
- The detrimental effects of plastic on soil are well explored in our country
mostly because it is through land that plastic and its particles end up in
water, more specifically, the plastic objects are blown away into drains,
canals, rivers, water reservoir, ponds, lakes, seas, bays etc.
- Moreover, having plastic in soil is not good for plants nor the animals since it
obstructs their development.
