Since sustainable and scientific waste management has been ignored for a long time, more and more waste from cities is ending up in Indian dumps. Several of the older landfills still have a hazardous legacy. India is trying to make a more scientific and long-lasting system for managing solid waste based on the ideas of decentralization and the circular economy. However, it can’t let old garbage get in the way of its progress.
This webinar of the month talks about how managing legacy waste through landfill mining or bio-mining can create unique problems, but it can also create technology-based ways to turn dumpsites into cash and valuable land.
