Title of Challenge
Postponed to November 4th week Mumbai City waste accumulation –Major challenge to Environment -
Description of city challenge
Mumbai city: Population of Mumbai, Maharashtra is estimated to be over 22 million people. The city ranks at number 6 spot in terms of most populated cities in the world. MCGM is a local authority for Mumbai area formed under Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act 1888 and is responsible for providing civic amenities to the citizens of Mumbai. Mumbai is having about 437 sq.km. Area and a population about 12.5 million and floating population of about 5 million. One of the major civic services, MCGM has to provide is collection, segregation, storage, transportation, processing & disposal of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in its area. The approximate quantity of Municipal Solid Waste generated in Mumbai is about 7000 Metric Tonnes per Day (TPD) besides 2500 Metric Tonnes per Day (TPD) Silt & Debris (S&D). Besides this Mumbai metropolitan area produces 2671 MLD of sewage and process 2130 MLD sewage per day. The processed sewage is discharged to the deep sea pipes.
Mumbai city which is below sea level is also prone to have reverse flow of these discharged sewage contaminating most of the natural portable water resources in the city.
The key issues for Mumbai Climathon challenge are waste hazards below:
1. Safe discharge of sewage water and protection oceanic under water eco system.
2. Seasonal epidemiological out breaks and air quality deterioration due to landfill and solid waste processing.
3. Inadequacy of Conscious programs for reduction of non-degradable waste.
Sewage Water affecting oceanic Ecosystems: Much like the city’s inland canals, rivers and lakes, Mumbai’s coastal waters will become contaminated with pathogenic microbes, resulting in illnesses from waterborne and food-borne pathogens found in the tissues of fish, eventually consumed by humans.
This scenario will play out in the future because the city’s western coastline is likely to bear the brunt of untreated sewage; an estimated 2,000 million litres per day (MLD) of untreated sewage is expected to make its way into the sea over the next 10 years.
Acute need for solid waste management: Mumbai alone accounted for 6.11% of the total waste generated daily in India. As its waste piles up, the land-starved city is staring at the big question — where to dump? The predicament, coupled with concerns for high-level emissions of greenhouse gases from the city’s unsanitary landfills and the growth of bacteria that cause life-threatening diseases. While the quantum of garbage generated by the city is only expected to increase, the infrastructure necessary to manage it is still not in place.
Air quality deterioration due to Landfills fires: A landfill fire occurs when waste disposed do not cover their waste daily, biological decomposition creates substantial heat and can cause material in the landfills to spontaneously combust. Developed countries have sought to methods like Oxygen intrusion control is the best method to prevent and fight subsurface landfill fires. "Fuel quenching", by allowing landfill gas build-up, can work well, especially in conjunction with maintenance of the daily cover of soil or material places on landfills.
The city is interested in the Climathon ideation ideas that can help them provide social and technical innovations for the challenge areas identified.
