  • srinaths Srinath Srinivasa, Associate Professor at IIIT Bangalore Good, clear, argumentation for zero waste. But not completely convincing. The case against large-scale WTE being infeasible, is clear. But is zero-waste possible at all? For a city of more than 10 million people, no matter how sensitive people are towards their waste disposal, the delta-x waste that they can't avoid, quickly accumulates across the millions. We can and probably should think of micro WTE units located within city limits, whose emissions are no more than that of a factory unit, whose environmental compliances are not expensive, and whose energy can be used for non-critical use like powering streetlights. 11 months ago

  • shamalasubramanyan Shamala Subramanyan Thank you so much for this. Truly the only real solution to garbage is 'reduce' (and 'reuse' locally and recycle 'minimally'), technology is probably stop gap or worse will lead to newer problems. 11 months ago
