Webinar on Landfill Remediation: Exploring opportunities for adoption of Fukuoka Method in Indian cities

Of the 62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste that is generated in India annually, 31 million tonnes of waste is collected and disposed in its dumpsites, alternately also referred to as landfills, however, these landfills are not made according to stipulated sanitary standards. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) projected that waste generation would increase further to 165 million tonnes by 2031 and to 436 million tonnes by 2050. At such a pace of generation and with existing waste management systems, India needs 1,240 hectares of land per year and 66,000 hectares by 2031 for disposal.
