PANJIM: Inaugurating the Organic Waste Management plant at Panjim on Thursday, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said that the State government would be introducing a new technology called ‘Static Aeration’ which will reduce the time to process the raw garbage.

“We have already tried the latest technology called ‘Static Aeration’ by which a triple layer cover will enclose the entire waste. With this the process, garbage treatment which takes around 15 days will be done in eight days and the plant’s capacity can be increased for the current 5 tonnes to 15 tonnes,” Parrikar said.

“This is a new technology and world wide it has not been commerciality exploited. We may be the first or second to install the facility. There are no moving parts, no machines, just an arrangement and a cover is enclosed above the garbage and the smell does not travel out. The entire facility is just like what can be called as enclosed cooking,” he said.

He added that this technology should take care of Panjim’s requirement while stating that the new plant will take care half of the waste generated in the capital city.

Goa will be Plastic free State: CM

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday said that PVC-based plastic will be banned from May 30, and that no plastic packaging will be allowed in the State from December. He added that littering would be made a punishable offence and that the first phase of plastic ban will come into effect from Jan 26, 2018.

“I am talking about PVC based plastic. And from December 19, plastic packing will be banned. Let us make Goa free of plastic,” Parrikar said after inaugurating the Organic Waste Management Facility at Patto. “If Goa is to be made plastic-free then, then it would need a crackdown on conventional plastic too,” he said.

Speaking on roadside debris, Parrikar said that throwing and littering will be strictly dealt with from Jan 26 and that trucks found violating norms will be confiscated.

“Goa will come under PVC based plastic ban from May 30, 2018. From Dec 19, 2018 no plastic packed item will be allowed in Goa. We will bring legislation to this effect. We will encourage degradable plastic,” he added.
