Bankable Projects in Siliguri
1. RDF Pelletization at existing Dumpsite
It is estimated that Siliguri generates more than 300 TPD of solid waste (2016). Almost 80% of the waste is collected and transported to an open dumpsite in ward number 42 near Don Bosco School Colony. An assessment of physical composition of dumpsite waste was carried out earlier. Due to its primarily organic composition municipal solid waste (MSW) is a suitable feedstock for thermochemical conversion. Current technologies process the MSW into refuse-derived fuel (RDF). These pellets can then be used by the cement industry as fuel for their boilers.
2. Implementation of Micro-Composting Center at Uttorayan Township
