Jhajjar introduces Waste Recovery Programmes according to Circular Economy Principles

Jhajjar Power Station strives to achieve ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ by adopting circular economy principles and implementing various reuse and recycling initiatives to minimise waste.

A key measure has involved maximising the reuse of waste generated from operations (e.g. metallic waste, rubber conveyor belts, electronic cards, and actuators) for secondary purposes on site. An expert agency was engaged to implement proper waste management measures and install material recovery facilities to enhance waste recovery. These included a Vibro-feeder, which helps in sorting waste through the use of a conveyor to separate inert materials like soil or dust from dry solid waste, and a Baler machine, a hydraulic pressing machine that compresses solid waste such as PET bottles.

Jhajjar is working towards paperless office status through digitalisation, implementing various digital systems such as a Management of Change System, Gate Pass Processing System, Invoice Tracking System, Vehicle Booking System and others.

Jhajjar has also striven to eliminate single-use plastic in its sites, implementing initiatives such as adding water dispensers at sites, replacing plastic bottles with glass and distributing cotton bags and steel bottles to contract staff. It has been validated by the Confederation of Indian Industry and certified as a single-use plastic free site. It has also achieved Zero Waste to Landfill certification by the Confederation of Indian Industry, indicating that it has implemented waste management practises that have resulted in over 90% of waste being diverted from landfills.
