Composting facility at Vellalore landfill might be extended

According to local media reports, the announced RDF plant, which should be constructed at the Vellalore landfill, is planned to have a treatment capacity of 600 tpd. Furthermore, Switzerland-based NGO International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) conducted a study on the landfill and possibilities for technological improvements of the latter. ICLEI is expected to present its findings and suggestions in June 2018. According to The Times of India, the upgrade of the site also includes the extension of the existing 100 tpd vermicompost plant by another 100 tpd. Furthermore, the capacity of the AD plant at the dump yard should be increased as well.
