About Waste Management

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) has become a challenge for Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) throughout the world. Depending upon the country spending capacity; every nation generates a different quantity per capita of MSW. Third world countries generate 250 grams per capita per day, whereas developed nations generate up to 2000 grams per capita per day.

MSW composition is variable, with moisture as the most challenging aspect when it comes to the development of a business model for sustainable practices, so there is an urgent need to develop sustainable alternatives for MSW from outdated landfills and even sanitary dump sites.

Generally, MSW projects are subsidized or publically funded. The cost to local governments / municipalities continues to rise with little or no hope for cost recovery. However, waste can be a valuable resource. This is already demonstrated in certain countries.

UNEP states that worldwide, there is a growing need for sustainable and coherent solutions to solid waste management problems. MSW seems to be more complex in developing and transitional countries, where the increase volume and type of wastes, as a result of economic growth, urbanization and industrialization, is becoming a burgeoning problem for national and local governments, making tougher to ensure an effective and sustainable management of waste ‘( WTE /Inter-American Development Bank handbook )

What we do?

Offer Solutions
H2K Tech offers solutions in various aspects of Waste Management. From Fire and Smoke management exhaustion solutions at Landfills or MSW Dumpsites, to Waste to Energy Projects, to Microbial Inoculum for biomass drying, Technology for Sewage,  Sludge, & Black Water Management, to Fast Pyrolysis from Biomass.
Smaller Community Solutions
IEC and H2K has Developed its models such that projects are technically viable at waste availability of 15 TPD and commercially viable at 50 TPD. Now smaller communities can get sustainable service in Waste Processing with IEC.
Waste To Energy
H2K Tech's Partner IEC has applied for a patent in its unique technology for Processing Mixed Municipal Solid Waste and utilising the Biomass for Power Generation, Compost as fertilizer or for Generating Biogas, recovering Metals and recyclable plastics, producing LDO from plastics and concrete blocks from Inert. Functionally, making it a Zero Landfill approach. 
Chemical Derivatives
Energy generation from Municipal / Industrial wastes may not be viable in some cases or some geo-political areas, therefore we have a combination of fast pyrolysis and integrated and parallel technologies which can help in producing industrial chemicals tha are used as ingredients, alternative sources or intermediates in industrial processes.

Problem Related to MSW Management

  • Composition of MSW varies with pocket to pocket
  • Segregation-At-Source has not become a reality and is adding cost to operations
  • MSW sites have foul odors & cause health risk to site workers & surrounding localities
  • Leachate or run-off from MSW is a major threat to ground water quality and in addition contribute to the production of a “biogas” that is 55% Methane ( CH4) and adds approximately 3% of the GHG that is contraindicated in climate changes.
  • Collection of leachate & its treatment prior to release requires is an unproven science.
  • Available Treatment technologies are quite capital & energy intensive.

Quantifiable benefits of our Waste Management Technology

Our focus at H2K Technologies is the generation of “smart” energy from MSW resources, which has all been made possible by the meticulous R&D behind our organic bio-drying agent and combined, with our 40 years of energy producing systems. We do not claim to have all the answers rather we hope that we can help to contribute and make this nuisance to ULB be a thing of the past
  • Dump sites worldwide are notorious for the offending stench released and as such, a measurable turn off from commercial and residential developments. With our technology, the stench is not only eliminated but the potential public health damages from leachate are also avoided. There are many cases where leachate have been implicated in groundwater contamination, thus serious public health risks can be avoided which would otherwise be burdensome for any government.
  • Our technology provides a basis for increased Renewable Energy conversion. Normally, some 100 -150 TPD is required for each MW of recovered renewable energy derived from municipal waste. But with the advent of the “Bio Drying” associated with our technology, only 50-55 TPD of municipal waste is required to generate 1 MW of renewable energy. Thus a city with a 2000 TPD municipal waste quota can technically generate about 40 MW of renewable energy compared to 15-20 MW or less from conventional systems.
  • The plant will require skilled, semi skilled and unskilled personnel, about 150 staff for each 12 MW of energy generation. Thus the local economy will enjoy sustainable economic growth.
  • Cost of our renewable energy technology will be significantly less than energy derived from fossil fuels.
  • Zero landfill goal is achievable with our Technology since the by-products (inert & ash from the energy generation units) can be converted into construction blocks.
  • Over a period of time, most of the land associated with the existing landfill can be recovered. In some cases, these are valuable locations which can be developed thus boosting the local economy.
  • “Renewable energy from waste” can be extended into agricultural waste since many countries under utilize the agricultural waste from say sugarcane (bagasse) which is simply incinerated. Our management has the solution for the same & would be pleased to discuss our proposal as and when the time is appropriate.
  • Emissions from our technology meet and exceed the recommendation from European Standards.
  • Generation of considerable civil engineering works which would further benefit the local economy.
  • Reduction of Green House Gases (GHG) and Carbon emissions.
  • Existing dumps must address leachate contamination, which is destroying the surrounding lands. The cost to treat leachate is significant. With Us, leachate is safely and effectively eliminated.
  • Energy generation is Safe, Cost Effective and Renewable. Fossil fuels have already hit “peak flow” thus the future supplies are in decline. Other sources of renewable energy (wind and solar) are intermittent.
