By Business India Editorial

Through its advanced pyrolysis technologies and methods, National Tyre Pyrolysis Corporation (NTPC) is working towards the elimination of hazardous waste from landfills across the country while turning non-degradable waste, such as tyres, plastics and polystyrene into valuable resources including steel, fuel and carbon-black.

Still, in its infancy, the company currently has the capacity to process over 3,000 tonnes of non-degradable waste annually. This generates over 1,200 tonnes (or 50,000 barrels) of waste-derived fuel and over 1,000 tonnes of steel annually. The company will ensure a reduction of 50 per cent of CO2 emissions on the carbon produced, while significantly bringing down landfill used by the waste.

The company aims to revolutionise the thermal degradation industry in India.

The process it uses is an environmentally friendly thermal degradation process that has led to the company being the world’s first and only tyre pyrolysis company to be certified with ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Systems) and ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management Systems).

NTPC envisions working with women leaders and entrepreneurs to help it replicate its model to create rural jobs and reduce India’s dependency on expensive fuel imports by up-cycling the available waste and reducing their negative environmental impact.

Led by a woman entrepreneur, Sunali Y. Kothari, NTPC hopes to bring women to the forefront in leading the way to significant waste reduction and reduced carbon reduction emissions.
