    Assam’s Dibrugarh district to produce 40 tonnes of bio-fertilises from solid waste

    GUWAHATI: Assam’s chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday said that with the solid waste generated in Dibrugarh and its peripheral areas, a target has been taken to produce 40 tonne bio-fertilises.

    Chief Minister Sonowal said, “With the scientific management of solid wastes, steps will be taken to generate by-products like bio-fertilisers, diesel, granules to be used for high way construction by using state of the art technologies.”

    Sonowal said this while taking stock of the progress of the solid waste management project being constructed at Lekai in Upper Assam’s Dibrugarh district.

    The waste management project is being constructed under the Assam Urban Infrastructure Investment Programme involving a financial outlay of Rs. 75 crore. The project with an installed capacity of 100 metric tonnes will produce 40-tonne biofertilizer as anbi-product.

    He further said that the government of Assam in its bid has taken steps for setting up solid waste management projects at different places. He also said that 98 urban areas have been identified for setting up the projects.

    The chief minister also emphasised that there should be adequate infrastructure in place for distributing the bio-fertilisers produced as by-products from the project to different agricultural fields, tea gardens etc. for increasing their productivity.

    “The completion of the project in Dibrugarh will lead to the fulfilment of the long-standing demand of the people for scientific solid waste management in the town and its adjoining areas which will also set a model and guideline for other solid waste management projects in other urban areas of the state,” he added.
