Segregation Of Waste for Recycling and Treatment (S.O.R.T.)

Project Segregation Of Waste for Recycling and Treatment (S.O.R.T.) is the flagship project of Motherson Group under its CSR initiative run by Swarn Lata Motherson Trust (SLMTT), which is implemented by Indian Pollution Control Association. The project has successfully been implemented at more than 286 locations in Delhi NCR (including Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, Mumbai and Pune). The Project was first implemented in Delhi-NCR in the year 2018 and now, has reached in its fifth phase. The project was conceptualized with the aim to promote source segregation of waste followed by maximum recovery through onsite treatment of organic waste. Creating awareness, training and capacity building of different stakeholders were the key activities of the project which has resulted in behavioral change of the consumers and increased rate of source segregation. One of the major components of the project is the installation of Aerobins. More than 800 Aerobins have been installed in over 286 locations. The Aerobin is designed as such that it requires no energy input. The only input required is of wet/organic waste from the kitchen or garden. The composter is easy to use and is based on thermal insulation which conserves the internal heat for rapid breakdown of biomass. It employs an aeration core that promotes aerobic decomposition of organic waste. The composting process is free from foul odour and the first compost can be harvested after 40-45 days. The composters installed at the project sites are of 400L capacity and are operated by a designated operator, who is responsible for its daily operations like feeding organic waste, monitoring the temperature, moisture and harvesting compost.

Mantra for Advance Sustainable Solutions (MASS)

IPCA, under the CSR initiative of SBI Cards and Payment Services Limited, has developed 5 Material Recovery Facilites (MRF) in Delhi, Greater Noida and Ghazibad with the capacity from 2 TPD to 50 TPD and one Plastic Recycling Facility with capacity to process 900 MT of plastic waste per month in Greater Noida. The objective was to establish a sustainable supply chain for low grade plastic waste including MLP and to improve its collection and segregation rate. This CSR project entitled 'Innovative Mechanism for Management of Plastic Waste- Phase II' was sanctioned to IPCA in previous financial year but completed and executed in current financial year with the approval of three additional MRFs (two with 2 TPD capacities and one with the capacity of 10 TPD). During Phase I of the project, IPCA has set-up one Material Recovery Facility of capacity 2 TPD in Geeta Colony, which was inaugurated by Sh. Vikas Anand, Commissioner, EDMC, on 29th July 2021 and started receiving dry waste (Plastic Waste) material for further segregation. It has been established in a plot area of 300 square meter provided by East Delhi Municipal Corporation. Dry Waste is collected by waste collectors from its source of generation and is sent to the MRF for segregation, baling and transportation to the Plastic Recycling Facility.

Solution of Air Pollution (SAP)

Industrial and traffic related air pollution are one of the responsible sources for generating high spatio-temporal variations in air quality in the city. It is generally high at traffic intersection due to idling conditions and lots of re-suspension of road dust. There is no such system developed at present that eliminates air pollutants, but nature has created some systems to deal with the detrimental fallouts of different anthropogenic activities up to a certain limit. There are some plants that can survive well with higher pollutant concentration. They act as a pollution scavenger without sustaining serious decline in their growth. They improve air quality by providing oxygen to the atmosphere and can serve as tolerant species. With this view, IPCA collaborated with Municipal Corporation Faridabad (MCF) and Goodyear India Ltd. to install the air purification units at different traffic intersection in Ballabhgarh city and to develop a greenbelt of 3.2 km at the National Highway of India from Escort Mujesar Metro Station to Goodyear India Ltd. Factory under the project Solution of Air Pollution (SAP). The project was launched by Shri Yashpal, IAS, Hon'ble Commissioner, Municipal Corporation Faridabad and Shri M.K. Bansal, Project Director, CMU, in the presence of senior officials from Haryana th State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB), CSIR- NEERI and other concerned government departments, on 27 March, 2021. In this project, IPCA adopted two mechanism to curb the issue of air pollution i.e. by using natural method by planting shrubs and plants at the national highway which have air purification qualities and secondly, using artificial method by installing air purification units at 3 locations, chosen strategically, which helps in curbing air pollution at the source through identification of the local hotspots in Ballabhgarh.
