Plans for biomedical waste plant in Jharkhand

The state government of Jharkhand has plans to build a central biomedical waste plant in Lohardaga. It would be serving nearly 200 private institutions such as hospitals or nursing homes from Ranchi and the five surrounding districts of Lohardaga, Khunti, Simdega, Gumla and Ramgarh. Plans provide to have the facility up and running by April this year, as the Times of India reported. Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) has appointed the company Medicare Environmental Management Pvt. Ltd. for building the plant, after two earlier tenders had not invited any bidder. The company is currently awaiting environmental permits from Jharkhand State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority (JSEIAA).
