CEF Group treats more than 2 lac metric tons of waste, plans to increase the number by 3 times
New Delhi, 29 April 2023: CEF Group, one of the leading organizations driving efficient waste management and green growth in the country, unveiled the remarkable achievement of treating more than 2 lac metric tons of waste and plans to amplify the number 3X by the end of next year. By means of superlative waste management methods which include automated and mechanical segregation followed by manual segregation, CEF Group is notably managing tons of waste produced and preventing the degradation of the environment.
CEF Group poise the best solution for waste management in India is by treating the organic waste and converting it into Bio-CNG, a method called anaerobic/aerobic digestion. The previous model of waste management adopted by several organizations did not prove effective as it utilized a non-environment-friendly method in which power was being generated via waste through incineration. In addition, that power was not sufficient to support the surging demands of India. And that’s where CEF Group intervened and tapped the untapped potential of waste management and emerged as the key market player without posing any threat to the environment.
“The CEF’s waste-to-energy process is uniquely articulated in order to provide maximum waste management with minimum harm to the environment. The process is initiated via the segregation of inert waste which further goes to landfills generating organic and inorganic substances. While organic substances are subjected to anaerobic/aerobic digestion to create biogas, followed by solid & liquid digestate which converts into organic manure, on other side – inorganic substances like glass, plastic, rubber, board, cloth, etc, are processed into RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) to be further utilized for combustion along with coal in cement factories, etc. Additionally, the biogas produced in the process of waste management by our company is then purified and converted into biomethane or Bio-CNG/CBG which can aid as vehicular fuel under the policy of SATAT.”, explained Mr. Maninder Singh, CEO, CEF Group.
The plants being set up by CEF Group are Zero Liquid Discharge based plants, which is a scientific environment-friendly approach as described in the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) 2016 rulebook.
Furthermore, citing the importance of waste reduction, Mr. Maninder Singh, CEO, CEF Group avered, “Following a three-pronged strategy- Minimizing the use of plastic in any form, avoiding littering organic or inorganic waste and ensuring waste collection from organized waste collection agencies at home, can aid phenomenal reform in the waste management ways.”
There are various government schemes and initiatives like SATAT and bio-gas subsidies among a lot that are extensively advocating environment-friendly methods of waste management to accelerate the green growth of the country. In addition, state governments are also encouraging hybrid models to ensure raw materials stability and other facilities required to set up waste management plants. To realize this vision, the Ministry of Urban Development has associated with ministries such as the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas to ensure a rapid pace of waste management in India.
