English Bazaar Municipality (EBM) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with an agency from Kolkata to produce organic fertilizer processing the solid-waste. The agency would be installing a modern machine at EBM’s under construction dumping ground at Mahadipur area within one and a half months.
Nihar Ghosh, EBM chairman and MLA signed the MoU with Tanay Pal, a representative of the agency at the civic body building today. Dulal Sarkar, vice chairman of the civic body and some other councilors were also present during signing of the agreement.
Pal said that although their company was based in Kolkata, the production of organic fertilizer would be done using American technology. “A machine would be installed soon at the dumping ground for the project,” he informed.
Ghosh on behalf of the civic body said, “Dumping ground was a prolonged crisis for the town. A site for dumping ground has been found and under preparation. Now, the solid-waste collected by civic body would be recycled. It’s a historic achievement for us.” (EOIPC)
