Making wealth from waste

Meenakshi Ravi

The need of the hour is to manage waste well because inefficient waste management could cause irreparable damage to the environment.

What a waste! It is a remark we often make while referring to something that is of no use to us. If waste were something that is of no use to us, would you be interested in a career in ‘waste management?’ Waste Management could well be an interesting career option with immense scope in the coming years because, the market for hazardous wastes’ management is worth $ 100 million; municipal solid wastes-to-energy or composts' projects, about $ 100 million, municipal sewage treatment, around $ 1.2 billion and air pollution control around $ 140 million.
