Our goal is to set up an easily replicable Integrated Solid Waste Management system (ISWM) based on zero waste principles. The outcome is a zero-landfill solution achievable through the use of innovative technologies for the bio region around Auroville including 50,000 people, 14 villages and 6 Panchayats.
ISWM refers a sustainable way of managing solid waste like metal, plastic, cardboard… It covers all sources and all aspects: waste generation, segregation, transfer, sorting, treatment, recovery and disposal, with an emphasis on maximizing resource use efficiency.
On the other hand, zero waste means no resource will go waste. Utterly, it means our system will have no landfill but only several Indian technologies processing waste back into a resource.
