Coal India Limited projects converting floral waste to fertilisers
As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR), state-owned Coal India Ltd has started two projects at Dakshineswar Kali temple and Babadham temple in Deoghar to produce organic fertiliser from floral waste.
“Eastern Coalfields Ltd (ECL), a CIL subsidiary has already executed two such facilities at Dakshineswar and Badadham in Deogarh (Jharkhand) where all floral waste generated are processed to make fertiliser,” ECL director (personnel) K S Patro said.
“Two more projects at Kalighat Temple and Tarapith in Birbhum district are also under implementation. The Kalighat project will take 3-4 months while the project at Tarapith would be operational in May,” he said.
