PROGRAMS and technologies are needed to remediate waste including municipal solid waste, human sewage, animal manure and used tires etc.
This was highlighted by the Minister of Waterways and Environment, Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Dr Mahendra Reddy during a press conference to announce the signing of the MoU between Infinite Power Company and the Ministry of Waterways and Environment.
He said currently these wastes were being burnt, buried or dumped into landfill sites or sewage treatment ponds where the run-off treated or untreated could end up in our seas.
“I visited Naboro Landfill less than three weeks ago and reviewed some of its existing operations and the challenges posed by daily waste being received and processed,” he said.
“With over 100k tonnage that the landfill is receiving every year, this figure continues to increase.”
Meanwhile, Infinite Power Corporation founder and CEO, Robert Beam said the company believes that climate change is a real situation that will eventually affect us all no matter where we live.
“So we are taking massive and immediate action to do our part right now to help make a difference by sharing and implementing these technologies with everybody.”
