Hazardous Waste Managment

Managment of Hazardous Waste

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India has notified the Hazardous and Other Waste (Management and Transboundary) Rules, 2016. As per the rules, hazardous waste means any waste which by reason of characteristics such as physical, chemical, biological, reactive, toxic, flammable, explosive or corrosive, causes danger or is likely to cause danger to health or environment. The hazardous waste generator shall follow the steps namely prevention, minimization, reuse, recycling, recovery, utilization including co-processing and safe disposal of hazardous waste. SPCB shall grant authorization for handling the hazardous wastes.

TNPCB has identified 3,545 units generating hazardous wastes and issued authorization under the rules. In Tamil Nadu about 6.91 lakhs tons of hazardous waste is annually generated in which 2.97 lakhs tones is landfillable, 3.42 lakhs tones is recyclable and 0.52 lakhs tones is incinerable. The Board is taking effective steps in handling and management of hazardous wastes, its treatment and disposal in an environmentally safe manner. One common hazardous waste Treatment Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) has been established at SIPCOT Industrial Estate, Gummidipoondi and another TSDF at Unduorumikidakulam village in Virudhunagar district is in operation.

TNPCB has taken pioneering efforts to utilize the hazardous waste generated from Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) of textile processing units as fuel/raw material for co-processing in the cement factories. So far, about 50,000 Tonnes of ETP sludge have been disposed to various Cement industries for co-processing. Similar trails are being taken-up for using hazardous waste generated from tannery CETPs in co-processing in the cement factories. A common facility for pre-processing of hazardous waste has been established in Ranipet. The facility pre-processes the hazardous waste so as to use the same for co-incineration in cement kiln.
