In an attempt to bring a temporary relief in the mounting waste disposal issues, a new incineration will start working at the Kozhikode Medical College soon.
The incineration was installed using the fund in the Hospital Development Society (HDS).
HDS member Saleem Madavoor advised’City Express’ that the society has allotted’15 lakh towards the costs which will be obtained for the installation works.
An official of the medical school said that an expert group, deputed by SIDCO, has seen the medical school to review the primary arrangements.
The work order was given to SIDCO and an agreement was signed between the medical faculty government and SIDCO officials three weeks back.
The medical school official added that the works of the incineration are completed and installation works will start within few days. When the brand new incineration begins operating, the waste disposal problems will be partly addressed. The incineration which has a potential of burning 150 kg of waste, will eliminate the residue generated from the medical college hospital.
Meanwhile, the medical school will continue to grapple with the waste being produced in the Institute of Maternal and Child Health (IMCH) and Super Specialty block as the incineration for all these blocks, which have been proposed at a cost of’63.5 lakh by the state authorities still stays on papers. If the incineration becomes a fact around 5,000 kg of waste can be disposed regular.
