Make In India Has Quick & Easy Solutions

While urban municipalities are still struggling to convince people to segregate dry and wet waste at source for its better management, here comes a tested indigenous technology which provides a solution to your waste management within the confines of your own homes. The compact and aesthetic waste to compost electronic machine does the work in four hours flat, leaving you with nothing but hugely less volume of high quality dry compost, which is certified to be odorless, methane gas free and eco-friendly. The machine makes little or no noise and consumes very less water and electricity. Although the current cost of the 2-kg capacity machine is on the higher side (Rs 42,000), with increased volume of sales, its manufacturers Pune-based Bhor Engineering, plan to bring it down drastically to the level of branded RO water filters.

The machines come in other sizes too, going right up to a ton (1,000 kg) capacity, which could prove revolutionary for management of ever increasing commercial, municipal, institutional and farm waste.

Announcing an entry into North India, comprising Chandigarh tricity, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir, in partnership with Mohali-based Renewic, Bhor Engineering Managing Director Arvind Rajput said, “In India, the technology is already in use with government organisations like Nasik Nagar Palika, Pune Municipal Corporation, Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and Maharashtra Vidhan Mandal, among others. The technology is the only one of its kind listed under GeM (Government e-Marketplace) scheme of Government of India and is helping give shape to PM Modi’s idea of Clean India under the banner of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan."  

Rajput said, Bhor Engineering, which has facilities spread over South Korea, India and Dubai also has a patented technology, the only one in the world, for converting waste into fertile water, which is ideal for irrigating lawns and farms, and could easily replace chemical fertilizers.

2,000 Machines Already Sold

“We have already sold close to 2,000 of the larger waste to compost machines during the last four years of our operations. Singapore has installed 69 of our machines right across the island country, replacing Chinese machines at some places. You’ll find our machines installed across Dubai, including the Dubai Mall and the World Trade Centre. We are in London and a host of other cities around the globe.

“In India, we have concentrated on serving the Army, Air Force and Navy, government organizations, large corporates, hospitals, five star hotels, religious places, educational institutions, etc. Buying and installing these machines qualifies for expenditure under mandatory CSR (corporate social responsibility) activities of large corporates. Infosys recently ordered 850 of the smaller machines for giving to its staff. Starbucks has also ordered 10-kg machines for its network of outlets.”

Massive Demand

The Bhor Engineering Managing Director asserted that the demand for the composting machines is set to leapfrog with RERA legislation making it mandatory for housing societies with more than 100 families to install composting machines within a two-year timeframe. In Mumbai, all the 81,000 housing societies in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region have to mandatorily install compost machines. Bangalore is also following suit, he added.

Rajput informed that to facilitate customers to buy the machines in installments, Bhor Engineering has a tie-up with ICICI Bank Credit Cards. Regarding disposal of any unwanted compost generated from the machines, he said very soon the company is going to come out with a scheme to pickup compost from places where it is not required and supply it on demand free of cost.   

Orders From The Region

Focusing on the demand for the compost machines in the region, Amanpreet Kaur Mangat, Managing Director of Mohali-based Renewic, and Parampreet Kaur, Director of the company, said they had already installed a 25-kg capacity compost machine in Gurdwara Singh Shaheedan in Sohana (Mohali) and were in advanced talks with the Golden Temple Amritsar management. The Mohali Municipal Corporation has also placed an order for the machines.
