The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India, New Delhi has notified the Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016 under the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. 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,whether alone or in contact with other wastes or substances". 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 3961 units generating hazardous wastes and issued authorization under the rules. In Tamil Nadu about 10.59 lakhs tons of hazardous waste is annually generated in which 0.77 lakhs tones is landfillable, 1.19 lakhs tones is recyclable, 8.38 lakhs tones is utilizable and 0.25 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.
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 1.55 lakhs 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 industries. Two hazardous waste pre-processing facilities are functioning in Tamil Nadu, one at Ranipet district and another at Villupuram district. These two facilities pre-process the hazardous wastes so as to use as alternate fuel for co-incineration in cement kiln. For scientific disposal of hazardous wastes, two common hazardous waste Treatment Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) are in operation, one TSDF at SIPCOT Industrial Estate, Gummidipoondi, Tiruvallur district and another TSDF at Unduorumikidakulam village in Virudhunagar district.read more
