Today the whole world is struggling with the coronavirus epidemic, now many more problems are also coming with this epidemic. The biggest problem in this is Kovid Medical West. In this era of corona, the use of masks, PPE kits and gloves has become the need of every person, so their use has also increased considerably than before. After being disposed of by Kovid Medical Waste, it reaches the entire West landfill sites, which is harmful to the people living in and around it as well as the environment.
Social Entrepreneur Binish Desai of Gujarat has tried to turn this environmental disaster from Kovid Medical Waste into an opportunity. Bineesh, working on the management of Kovid Medical Waste, is also known as the 'Recycle Man of India'. He has already made about 150 types of products including building materials from the West. Binish says that there is nothing waste in this world, the thing which is waste for you, it can be an asset for someone else.
According to a report, since March, 101 metric tonnes of Kovid-linked biomedical waste are coming out of the country every day.
Since March, 101 metric tons of Kovid biomedical waste is coming out in the country every day.
Bineesh Desai, the founder of the Beedream Company, has devised the technology to build sustainable building materials from Industrial West. Binish said that his first innovation was to recycle the waste from the paper mill to make P-block bricks brick. Now Bineesh Kovid is also going to make P-Block 2.0 with medical vests like used masks, gloves and PPE kits. Most people have been using single use masks since March 2020, Bineesh explains. Once used, these masks are thrown in the open or in a garbage dump. I was sitting home in lockdown so I thought why don't I start making bricks from this waste too. According to a report by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), 101 metric tonnes of Kovid-linked biomedical waste has been coming out of the country every day since March. In addition, 609 metric tonnes of biomedical waste is produced in our country a day. “
Team members will work wearing PPE kits during the process of waste collection and disinfection
Bineesh explains about the process of Kovid Waste Collection, 'For this we will put an eco bin at the public place including hospital, restaurant, saloon. According to the guidelines of the Central Pollution Control Board, when this bin will be filled, this bin will be isolated for 72 hours i.e. it will not be touched. After 72 hours, our team will bring these bin to our center, following full precautions and rules.
Gujaratis are making bricks with used PPE kits and masks.
This team will be wearing PPE kits. After coming here, the bin will be disinfected and then its first washing. After this the PPE kit and mask will be separated and washed again. Our team members will also do this work by wearing PPE kits. After this process, this cavid vest is completely disinfected. Then the bricks will be prepared by cutting it into small pieces and mixing it in fixed proportions with a paper sled and binder. “Bineesh says that the formula of the binder is our trade secret, so we can't share much more about it with you. .
52% PPE material, 45% wet paper sludge and 3% glue used for making P-Block 2.0
“52% PPE material, 45% wet paper sludge and 3% glue will be used to make this brick,” explains Bineesh. The process of making bricks from biomedical waste is the same as bricks are made from paper mill waste. Binish first worked in his home lab and then made some sample bricks in his factory. After the experiment was successful, Binish sent these bricks for testing from a government lab in Valsad. Bineesh says that due to the Korana epidemic, we could not send our samples to the National Lab. Our BRICS prototype has passed all the quality tests during testing.
Benish has designed this brick using PPE kits and masks. This brick is also lighter than traditional brick and a brick costs 2 rupees 80 paise.
4 thousand bricks will be ready daily, bookings for next one and a half months have also been done
Binish says that the size of these bricks is 12 x 8 x 4 inches. 7 kg of biomedical waste is used to make a square foot brick. These bricks are water and fire proof, this brick is also lighter than traditional brick. A brick costs 2 rupees 80 paise. These bricks will be used in construction. Binish says that they will start making bricks from the second week of September. Every day 4 thousand bricks will be prepared in their plant. These bricks have also been pre-booked for the next month and a half.
The journey to make the best out of the West started from Chewingam
Regarding the journey from West to making the best, Benisch said that when he was in the sixth grade, one day a chewing gum stuck to his pants in the classroom. In class, I took out the chewingum from a piece of paper and wrapped it in this paper and kept it in the pocket thinking that it would be thrown out later. After the completion of school, when Benish's attention went to this paper, he saw that the chewing gum in the paper has become like stone. From here Benish got the idea why not to make bricks from it. If nobody listened to Benish, he started experimenting alone.
Benish started his own company at the age of 16 with an organic binder making such bricks. Benish now used paper mill waste, gypsum waste, metal and textile waste to make such bricks. They make various designs of bricks and building materials from this vest. In Gujarat, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, more than 1000 toilets have also been made from their built bricks.
