CHENNAI: As part of a green initiative, Perambur Carriage and Wagon Workshop has signed an agreement with a private cement manufacturing company for disposal of the zero value waste for co-processing and use at cement factory for a period of 10 years.

The incinerated include rexin, cushion, coir and thermocol. The railway workshop generates about 3,000 tons of waste a year and the move is expected to provide a major relief to the workshop against fire threat, pollution and unnecessary space occupation.

The accumulated waste would be transported to the cement factory in goods carriers where it would be used in the cement kilns after shredding. The waste would be burnt at 1,400-degree centigrade in the cement kilns leaving behind no residue. The co-processing of waste would eventually bring down the fossil fuel requirements of the cement factory.
