MCC plans to upgrade its waste processing plant in Pachchanady

The Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) has announced plans to upgrade its solid waste processing plant and associated facilities in Pachchanady. The upgrade is estimated to cost INR 12.5 million (EUR 15 million) and will feature a leachate squeezing machine, a shredder, an advanced bag opener machine, a presorting machine and installation of sanitary napkin incinerators. The plant is 10 years old and has the capacity to store and process 220 tpd of waste, but currently receives about 300 to 350 tpd waste. Funding for the project will be made available by government corporations. According to The Hindu, the commencement of the project is likely to be delayed for a year due to administrative issues.
