ANANTAPUR: The State government on Thursday issued an order forming the Andhra Pradesh Environment Management Corporation (APEMC), to provide an effective mechanism for collection, transportation, storage, treatment, processing, delivery and disposal of industrial and other waste.

As a number of industries functioning in the State belonged to the red and orange categories and generate significant quantities of liquid waste, hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste and air pollutants, the government came up with the decision to manage and scientifically dispose of the waste.
