According to Suchitwa Mission officials, the trial run will continue for a month. “Various factors of operation are being tested during the trial run. On Sunday, we tested using minimum waste. The incinerator is almost fully loaded for testing today,” said a Suchitwa Mission official on Monday. Waste, including meat, from Palayam market was disposed of on Monday.

 “We are checking and adjusting display units, furnace, nozzles etc,” said George Chackacherry, executive director, Suchitwa Mission. He said the incinerator effectively disposed of waste during the trial.

A technical committee consisting of officials of Suchitwa Mission, Pollution Control Board, SIDCO etc will inspect the working of the incinerator for a month. The unit can dispose of one tonne of waste in an hour. It can work for 8-16 hours.
