Delhi and Ahmedabad set the best examples of using dumps in the construction of highways

The primary motive discussed today all over the globe is to control pollution. Every day, many tonnes of garbage are collected from major cities in India. But this garbage has no space for disposal. NHAI has finally found a way to deal with growing pollution.
Now, municipal waste will be further used as material in constructing offices and homes. This method is already used in Ahmedabad and Delhi to build highways.
The decision of NHAI Jharkhand
After studying the unique concept of reusing municipal waste for road construction, NHAI Jharkhand is looking to apply the same. This method has several benefits such as a decrease in pollution and the usage of soil and stones.
After Delhi and Ahmedabad, the method of using municipal waste in road construction will now step in Ranchi. The road connecting Ranchi to Tata is made by using fly ash-steel slag. Apart from the steel slag, the garbage will also make the road stronger.
The method of including garbage in road construction will also solve the problem of garbage disposal in Jharkhand state.
Problems of the Jhiri dump site
For more than 2 decades, the problem of municipal waste is not solved at Jhiri. Authorities have spent nearly INR 135 crores in managing this waste at the Jhiri dump site. Bio-mining techniques are widely used to dispose of this waste.
But garbage will reduce this problem to a great extent. The use of garbage will also save money and eliminate waste by up to 80% in Jharkhand.
Jhiri dump site has a mountain of garbage with a height of above 100 feet. It also has the problem of flies and mosquitoes. Some anti-social elements are burning the garbage thereby making it tough for commuters to walk on that road. No agricultural land is left in Jhiri for farming.
Jhiri plants
GAIL India is currently building its 2 plants at the Jhiri dump site. In this site, the wet waste will go for disposal whereas dry waste will be included in the road construction. At these plants, the biogas is made by the disposal of wet waste like leaves, fruits, and veggies.
The biogas of around 10 tonnes will be prepared each day At the Jhiri plant, t. It will also act as fuel for cars and other vehicles. It is estimated that municipal corporations will be able to save many funds in the coming years.
Around 300 tonnes of dry waste at the Jhiri dump site will be included in constructing the roads. This decision of using garbage in road construction is beneficial for the future generation.
