The Government of India has approved financial support worth INR 2.95 crore for a plastics recycling plant in Haridwar, which has been proposed by the Uttarakhand Panchayati Raj Department. The total cost for the installation amounts to INR 3.75 crore and the annual outlay is estimated at INR 65.96 crore (EUR 852,872). The plant will convert plastic waste from surrounding villages to multi-layered laminates and a product named Plastwood. Construction was scheduled to start on 2 October 2019, but has been postponed due to rainfall expected in the region.
