Wonder Cement signs MSW MoU
18 September 2017

India-based Wonder Cement has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the municipal council of Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh, regarding the use of municipal waste to fuel its cement kiln.

According to the MoU, the council will arrange door-to-door waste collection, waste segregation and will transport the dry and plastic waste to the cement producer’s cement works in Nimbahera to be used as alternative fuel.

“The primary environmental benefit of solid waste fuel comes from the reductions in landfill emissions and fossil fuel use. We are already processing the wet waste to make organic fertiliser and now taking a step ahead, recyclables like paper and metals would be separated out. The rest would be sent to the cement factory where it would be burned,” Kamlesh Doshi, the chairman of the municipal council, said.
