Tamil Nadu to establish new waste rules

The Indian state of Tamil Nadu is expected to impose new waste legislation soon, following the union government’s 2016 Solid Waste Management Rule. The proposed policy includes a measure forbidding high calorific non-recyclable waste to be landfilled. Furthermore, it was said that a rule requiring industries located near RDF plants to source at least 5% of their fuel consumption from RDF would also be included in the legislative proposal. Another rule would oblige developers of industrial areas to earmark at least 5% of their respective estates for waste management and recycling operations. This was reported by the New Indian Express.
