Four circular economy parks are being considered in Maharashtra and the state is preparing to create its own circular economy park policy. Leading recyclers, policymakers, business executives, SPCB, IITs, civil society organizations, and experts were invited to a symposium held in Mumbai as a joint effort between the state’s industry department and the Material Recycling Association of India (MRAI). The symposium covered the critical topics for developing this policy.
The goal of the “Maharashtra State Circular Economy Park Policy” Symposium was to discuss the ideas from recycling stakeholders for the proposed Circular Economy Park in Maharashtra. The discussions also covered the availability of raw materials, logistics, facilities for shared infrastructure, R&D, centers of excellence, centers for skill development, incentives from state and federal governments, ease of doing business with single window clearance, and other topics.
The four parks will come up in Konkan, Vidarbha, Mumbai and Pune.
