Most Indian cities struggle to meet minimum standards for collecting, transporting, treating and disposing of MSW. Waste generation far outstrips collection and treatment infrastructure. Segregation at source is non-existent, sorting is manual, coverage is limited, disposal is unscientific, and service backlogs are huge. Further, lack of enforcement, limited capacity at the local level, and the absence of a long-term plan have created various challenges in managing solid waste.

The government recognises the need to address the huge gap and is playing its role in this regard. It has allocated about Rs 1 trillion in key programmes including the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) of 500 habitations and the development of 100 smart cities. Another Rs 620 billion has been set aside for the Swachh Bharat Mission.

Over the last few years, the scope for PPPs in MSW management has expanded. Different models with different approaches for the assessment of risks and responsibilities of stakeholders are being adopted. Cities such as Mumbai, Surat, Faridabad, Agra and Dhanbad have entered into arrangements with private players.

The concept of recycle and reuse of wastewater has gained significant interest in the country. Municipal corporations are opening up to the idea of deploying advanced technologies to treat solid waste, as well as recycle and reuse it.

There is tremendous potential for producing energy from municipal solid waste. As per MNRE, the WtE potential across 35 states and union territories stands at 1,532 MW.

The MSW sector in India is all set to grow, driven by the government’s ambitious programmes to develop and upgrade SWM infrastructure in all cities. The research estimates that projects involving an investment of over Rs 45 billion are under implementation or are planned to be taken up in the future. With a strong pipeline of projects, the MSW sector offers several business opportunities across different segments - contractors, consultants, equipment and technology suppliers, material suppliers and other ancillary market segments

Overall, the MSW sector has a promising outlook and offers huge opportunities for all stakeholders over the next few years.
