Paper Title
A review on solid waste management in different areas of India
  Hema kumari baghel,  Umesh kumar,  Ravindra kumar

Increasing population levels, extremely rapid economic growth and rise in community living standard accelerates the generation rate of municipal solid waste (MSW) in Indian cities. Inadequate management of SW (Solid Waste) causes hazards to inhabitants. The objectives of the study are to determine the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of SW along with basic information and to the importance of GIS maps. The generated Arc GIS maps give needful information concerning static and dynamic parameters of the municipal solid waste management (MSWM) problem such as the generation rate of MSW in different wards, collection point locations, MSW transport means and their routes, and the number of disposal sites and their attributes. Determining the characteristics of SW Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM) is one of the most problematic and abandoned aspect of Indian Cities. Also, high population growth and industrialization put strain on the basic infrastructural and municipal services, urbanization, which in turn results in a corresponding increase in MSW. In the present study, an attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive review of the characteristics, generation, collection and transportation, disposal and treatment technologies of MSW practiced in different areas of India. The study related to MSWM for different cities has been carried out to evaluate the current status and identify the major problems. The study is concluded with a few fruitful suggestions as a solution, which may be beneficial to encourage the competent authorities/ researchers to work in sake of improvement of the present system.

Keywords- Pelletization, biomethanation, incineration, municipal solid waste, geographic information system. Environmental conservation, municipal solid waste management.
