Bhubaneswar: Bio-mining is set to start at Bhuasuni near the city with the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) getting the approval of its revised request for proposal from the parent department.
The BMC will now go for selection of a competent agency to implement the project. The operator is expected to instal plant and machinery for bio-mining of the existing legacy solid waste and subsequently reclaim the land as per management of solid waste rules.
The project involves reduction of the unprocessed legacy mixed waste, but is not limited to excavating compacted mixed solid waste which underwent biological degradation, said Suvendu Kumar Sahoo, Deputy Commissioner, Sanitation.
He further said the operator is expected to do the processing of 2000 ton on daily basis with a total estimated budget of around Rs 100 crore.
