In a developing country like India, where housing construction and infrastructure building projects are growing at an unprecedented rate, so is the C&D waste. In line with the sustainable development goals, it is also imperative to bring into focus "How to manage the enormous C&D waste generated". According to the Building Material Promotion Council, the country generates an estimated 150 million tonnes of C&D waste every year but recycles only 1% of it, which create issues like solid waste pollution, land depletion, air pollution, etc.

In the last few months, the Govt. of India has clearly shown its intent to focus on faecal sludge management, including C&D waste. CDE Asia also aims not only to minimize this C&D waste but also to convert this waste into a usable and valuable resource.

Indian Government Policy Intervention to reduce waste from C&D

In the recently concluded budget, Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman unveiled Swachh Bharat 2.0 and allocated 1.41 lakh crore rupees which will be spent over five years from 2021. The government is focused on reducing air pollution by managing waste from construction and demolition and bioremediation of dumpsites.

In a recent press release, NITI Aaayog also stressed the fact that India must move towards a circular economy by striving to use resources sustainably. According to NITI Aayog, 11 Committees have been formed to expedite the transition of the country from a linear economy to a circular economy. Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs will prepare a comprehensive plan along with carrying necessary modalities to manage construction waste.

Recently, Rajasthan Government has also released the much-awaited m-sand (sand produced from crushing stones) policy which gives industry status to the companies producing these sand for construction activities. CM Ashok Gehlot, in his statement, said, "Sufficient quantity of sand [for construction] is not available in Rajasthan in the wake of judicial orders and environment-related procedures. The new policy will ensure availability of M-sand as a long-term alternative to natural bajri."
