LMC launches a new project to convert construction debris in Lucknow into tiles & marbles!

Being implemented on public-private partnership, this project is expected to begin operations in a week.

Lucknow Municipal Corporation is all set to execute the production of interlocking tiles from the waste debris material. As a part of this scheme, the leftover debris material shall be refurbished into paving material like tiles and marbles. Slated to start by the end of March, this project shall not only witness the development of innovative products but also aid in better management of waste and scrap substances present at the construction sites.

Debris to be sourced from government and private construction sites


Pankaj Bhushan, an environmental engineer working with LMC was quoted saying, "We are trying to start the project before Holi. At first, we will produce interlocking bricks and later we will try to produce tiles and marbles. Recycling will help protect the environment."

As per reports, the authorities are trying to begin operations under this project before Holi. In this regard, reports state that the production complex near SGPGI has already been developed and the specific machines from an Ahemadabad-based company will reach soon. Reportedly, these advanced apparatus shall have the manufacturing capacity of developing 800-1,000 tiles from 100 metric tonnes of debris at the construction plants.

According to the current plans, the debris shall be obtained from both private and government construction projects. Reportedly, the debris shall be procured from private firms by paying a price while it will be available for free from the government-managed sites. After the material is procured, it shall be converted into tiles and marbles with the help of specialised machines.

Tiles and marbles would be available for sale in markets


Post-production, the tiles will be put to sale in general markets besides being used by the municipal corporation. All kinds of firms, including government and private entities are allowed to buy these inventive products. Being developed in an initiative to reduce the waste in the city, these tiles would come with an array of benefits.

According to sources, this project is being implemented based on a public-private partnership. While the plant is being developed by a government agency, it shall be handed over to a private firm for conducting operations. Subsequently, the profits generated shall be shared between the two establishments. It is expected that this project will revamp the building-waste management in Lucknow.
