Call Outline

The objective of present call is to develop and demonstrate technologies for sustainable utilization of MSW waste for cleaner and pollution free envirnomet as well as generaton of the energy from MSW.

However each of them has advantages and limitations. Their limitations may be slow processes, incomplete conversion and huge land requirement or high energy requirements. Hence the focus of this call is to develop adequate and sustainable technology.

The scope of the call will be limited to cost effective, novel and innovative approaches for:
1. Treatment of municipal solid waste (may also include human feces)
2. Biological or/in combination with thermo‐chemical routes for generation of clean energy
3. Technologies for conversion of leachate generated from landfills
4. Technologies with minimum usage of resources like water , land and power
