About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

You would be surprised to note that more than 65 million tonne of waste is generated by 350 million people every year. 90% of this waste goes to landfills that have huge implications such as contaminated air, water in its surroundings, higher likelihood of epidemic and unhygienic surroundings. It is equally surprising to note that 60% of the rejects/waste generated is green/organic in nature, and can be reprocessed before it becomes waste.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Clean India Ventures has invented a Green Waste Reprocessor machine which re‐process all green reject and converts it into valuable by‐products. We are manufacturing machines of various capacities from 500 kgs per day to 5 ton per day.

Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Imagine yourself walking on the side of the road, and you cross the big containers of dustbin boxes, your hand straight away goes to your nose so that you don’t breathe the poor odor that the waste is generating in that area. Our Solution helps the municipal bodies in cleaning up that aspect by managing that waste and turning that waste into an effective way of generating income for everyone. Not only this helps in clearing the waste, it also helps in the employment generation for rag pickers and other lower level people who are looking for a job. At the same time reducing massive emissions of poisonous gases that are there in landfill areas and reducing vehicle loads of roads.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

Four machines have already been installed in the Delhi by New Delhi Municipal Council and Central Public Work Departments in the various parks which comes under their jurisdiction (Lodhi Garden, Nehru Park). These machines are working properly and treating the waste on the spot and generating by product. Currently, we are in talks with Central Ordnance Depot, New Delhi, North Delhi Municipal Corporation, Ministry of Drinking Water & Sanitation and Faridabad Municipal Corporation to install our machines within next 10-15 days.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

In order to create a full impact and to install machines, we are appointing distributors across India. Mostly, we are looking to have a direct sales arrangement with the customers/municipal bodies. For states such as North Eastern States, we can look at appointing distributors.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

By product of the waste that we generate is enriched with nutrients and has a high demand in Indian Market and International Market as well. We are looking forward to create our own brand of the by product and sell it in the market at a market price. At the same time we are proposing to corporations to install these machines either on purchase basis, or tipping charges basis so that project is viable.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There are companies who are trying to provide solution to Municipal Solid Waste by reprocessing the waste together. Unfortunately it is a failure and only eyewash to install big plants. Sooner or later, corporations have started to realize that segregation and reprocessing is a much more viable way.
