HD Hyundai aids Okhla dumpsite's solid waste management

Effective solid waste management is crucial for maintaining clean and sustainable cities. Delhi has three landfill sites — in Ghazipur, Okhla, and Bhalswa - which almost look like undulating hills. The Government of India, through its municipal body, has awarded tenders to three different companies to process 30 lakh metric tons of legacy waste at each of the above three landfill sites. For landfills in Okhla (46 acres), the Government has set an ambitious goal to clear the dumpsite via the disposal of 30 lakh metric tons of legacy waste through bio-remediation and bio-mining.

To achieve this, the government has turned to innovative remediation techniques, including bio mining. In pursuing this objective, Hyundai has provided cutting-edge hydraulic excavators such as the Hyundai R215L SMART PLUSand Hyundai R140LC-9 to its customer Greentech Environ Management Pvt.Ltd. In this blog, we will explore how HD Hyundai Construction Equipment India has played a pivotal role in revolutionizing solid waste management practices at the Okhla dumpsite in Delhi.

Understanding Solid Waste Management

Solid waste management involves collecting, transporting, processing, and disposing of waste materials to minimize environmental impact and promote public health. Government has been working diligently to address the city's waste management challenges, particularly in bigger dump sites like Okhla, Bhalswa, and Ghazipur, which have become a significant concern due to their size and the amount of waste they hold.

Biomining, an environmentally friendly technique, has emerged as a solution for separating recyclable materials and fine-soil-like material from legacy waste buried at dumpsites. Recyclable materials are sorted, segregated, and further utilized, recycled, or disposed of scientifically. In the case of Okhla, the sheer scale of the dumpsite requires specialized equipment, such as excavators with a large bucket capacity and powerful air conditioning systems, to ensure operator comfort in harsh temperatures.

Ltd. These excavators offer the necessary features for efficient waste handling and sorting. The R140LC-9 boasts a gross power of 105 HP, an operating weight of 13,790 kg, and a bucket capacity of 0.65 m³ HD / 0.72 m³ GP.

Furthermore, These excavators prioritize operator comfort and productivity. The spacious air-conditioned cabin creates a comfortable working environment, and the seats offer seven adjustments, including seat height movement.
