Two more cement firms approach Goa over baled plastic
Two more cement companies-Vasavadatta Cement at Gulbarga and JK Cement at Bagalkot in Karnataka-have approached the Goa government that they are not in a position to dispose of baled plastic in Goa. Recently ACC cement recently informed the State government that due to a technical problem at their plant they were not in a position to dispose of baled plastic in Goa.
Goa generates 10 tonne of baled plastic waste every day. The Department of Science, Technology and Environment had signed the agreement with ACC Cement at Wadi Gulbarga to dispose of the baled plastic.
It is given to understand that the Department of Science, Technology and Environment is looking to dispose of plastic waste from the state to cement industries for co-processing.
