B)  Environmental Planning and Policy Planning Studies from Institutions such as Central Pollution       Control Board, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Govt. of India, WORLD BANK and Industrial       Associations:


Project

Brief Description of Project

Outcome

 

Life Cycle Analysis of Plastic Waste

(sponsor : PCB)

Assess Plastic Waste Generation in Mumbai city

Evaluate the chain from Generator to Reprocessor

Evaluate reprocessing technologies used

Generate Guidelines for Improvement of entire chain

 

Rule regulating minimum thickness of Plastic carry bags

introspection of plastic use and solid waste generated in Hospitals (and subsequent Medical Waste Rules)

introspection of solid waste generation in urban cities in India and the entire recycling mechanism (and subsequent Municipal Solid Waste Rules)

 

Development of Hydrocarbon/Emission standards for Petrochemical Industries

(sponsor : CPCB)

Study Petrochemical Units in India from a view of Hydrocarbon (VOC)  Emissions

Study techniques used in Western Countries for VOC Control

Monitor levels used and efficiencies of systems used for VOC Control in India

Develop suitable Legislation for India for VOC control in Petrochemical Industries

Legislation for control of VOC’s from Process Vents and Fugitive emissions and regulating flaring  in Petrochemical industries

 

Identification of Minimum Economic Size for Certain Toxic Chemicals Manufactured in SSI to ensure Pollution Control.

(sponsor :CPCB)

National Inventory of SSI manufacturing Dyes, Drugs, Pesticides, Leather Chemicals and their intermediates. Toxicological Assessment of chemicals, Identification of candidate substances for Banning/Phase-out in SSI sector. Case studies to find out AB/AT ratio to identify Minimum Economic Size, if pollution control is to be ensured in units manufacturing toxic chemicals.
# Phase-I National Level Study on SSI   Manufacturing  Chemicals, visits to  industrial areas, discussions with experts, Associations etc
# Phase-II Data Assimilation and Desk Study – consolidated list of chemicals manufactured in SSI, toxicological studies, ranking and short listing to identify candidate substances for banning, phase-out  etc

Phase-III Case Studies-visits to manufacturing units, working out theoretical and practical material balance, identifying suitable effluent treatment technologies and working AB/AT ratios.

Legislation banning certain toxic chemicals for manufacture by  the Small scale

 

URBAIR - Mumbai.

(sponsor : UNDP/World Bank)

Formulating Grid Based Emissions Inventory for Identification of Point, Line and Area Sources for Mumbai city. The total area of coverage was 40 km x 20km. Multiple Source Modeling using Gaussian Model “KILDER” developed by Norwegian Institute of Air Research. Formulating an Air Quality Management Strategy and working out techno-economic benefits of proposed measures. Details of work actually carried out :
# Review Air Pollution Scenario in Mumbai City by accessing AAQM Data available with MPCB, MCGB and NEERI (under GEMS program)
# Preparation of Emissions Inventory – for Point, Line, Area Sources by

Preparation of fuel emission inventory for Mumbai city

Identification of Point sources on 1 x 1 km grid

Collection of traffic counts and identification of ‘nodes’ on grid map

Spatial distribution of slum/non-slum Population to distribute domestic fuel use

Identify other area sources such as quarries, waste dumps etc

#  Multiple source Modeling
#  Cross-check modeled data with monitored values.
#  Formulate Action Plan based on Emission Inventory findings
# Techno-economic benefits of proposed actions using modeling techniques

First time ever a Grid based Emission Inventory was prepared for an Indian City

PUC norms being enforced in a different format

Introduction of unleaded Gasoline

Introduction of low sulfur diesel

Improvement in Diesel Quality

Increased Govt. expenditure on account of CNG

Regulation of lube oil quality for 2/3 wheelers

Increased attention to improvement in transport network

Report of findings published by World Bank as Technical Series Paper No.381, titled “URBAIR” in two volumes.

 

Air Quality Improvement for Dhaka city

(sponsor: World Bank)

Dhaka city is plagued by air quality issues similar to any Asian city i.e poor fuel qualities, outdated vehicle technologies, poor planning. Details of work actually carried out :
# Co-ordinating with team of Dhaka officials visiting India
# Organising discussions/presentations with policy makers and technology suppliers in Refining and Automobile manufacturing sectors to discuss on latest changes planned to meet stringent emission control laws
# Organising discussions with City planners to discuss how transport network improvement was brought out
# Organising visits to sophisticated monitoring laboratories for automobile emissions and industrial emissions monitoring
# Discussing Indian experiences with various legislative measures and time analysis of improvements brought out

Legislations in Dhaka on urban transportation issues covering PUC’s, auto technologies, fuel quality etc

 

 

Identification of site for Disposal of Hazardous/ Solid Waste     

(Sponsor : Patalganga Rasayani Industries Association)

Characterization of Hazardous Waste generated by Member Industries, Suggest Disposal strategy, identify disposal site, evaluate engineering feasibility for disposal. Details of work actually carried out :
# Study of manufacturing processes, material consumptions and outputs to gauge characteristics of Hazardous and solid wastes generated in the complex
Identification of quantities of compatible wastes for defining disposal strategies
Identify possible areas for developing Common Hazardous Waste Disposal Site for PRIA
#  Evaluate each area from viewpoint of available volume, impacts to environment and nearby populace from proposed activity
# Evaluate techno-economic feasibility for proposed development

Site was notified by Government of Maharashtra for development

 

Good Manufacturing Practices Document (All India Printing Ink Manufacturers Association)


(Sponsor AIPMA)

Study of Different types of Ink Manufacturing units from viewpoint of Safety and Environment. Recommend Guidelines for improvement of existing conditions :
# study the manufacturing processes of different ink  manufacturing units and their material balance
# study the environmental pollution caused by these units
# study hazards in ink manufacture
# monitor air/water quality to determine extent of impact on environment/work-room environment
# Develop Guidelines for improvement, discussions with Associations

Guidelines published by Association for use by Member Industry

 

Project Management for CETP -

(Sponsor : Patalganga Rasayani Industries Association)

PRIA proposed to set-up a Common Effluent Treatment Plant for MIDC at Patalganga. Actual detail of work carried out was as under :
# study of manufacturing units from a view point of water usage and effluent generation
# study of effluent treatment technologies available and their performance
# identify strategy for setting-up a CETP
# conducting laboratory trials and pilot scale trials for effluent treatment methodology
# inviting bids on behalf of Association, evaluating bids and finalizing turnkey contractors
# supervising during construction of CETP
# commissioning of CETP with help of turnkey contractor 

CETP established and commissioned with lowest capital and lowest monthly operating cost (compared to a similar size plant)
