M/s Soma Srinivas Reddy Engineers and Contractors will build a new construction and demolition (C&D) waste plant on its own land in Kothwalguda, covering the eight circles of Chandrayangutta, Charminar, Falaknuma, Rajendranagar, Mehdipatnam, Karwan, Goshamahal, and Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad.

The plant, which will be built on more than five acres in Kothwalguda, will recycle 500 tonnes of C&D trash every day (TPD). 

The GHMC has said it will write a letter to the State government requesting authorization to provide the agency a license to collect, transport, process, and manage C&D waste. The agency plans to build a C&D plant on five acres and a solar facility on two acres of the seven acres available at the location.

The company would also take responsibility for developing a collection and transportation mechanism, including mobilization of adequate fleet and manpower through procurement, hiring, and owning, as well as the establishment of secondary transfer points and a weighbridge at the plant site, within one month of the agreement’s signing.

Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited has already established two C&D waste recycling plants in Jeedimetla and Fathullaguda, each with the capacity to recycle 500 MTD C&D waste.

Currently, nearly 2000 TPD of C&D waste is generated in Hyderabad each day, reports The Indian Express.
