We designed an installation to treat fleshing waste from tanneries and convert it into bio-oil, bio-gas and fertilizer. With this project 40 tons of fleshing dumping is reduced with a potential of 100 tons a day in the area of Kanpur. This result in a production of 4 tons bio-oil a day. This is second generation oil, which is not in conflict with food or feed.
India is one of the rapidly emerging countries of the Asian continent. As the government reduced controls on foreign trade and investment, higher investments were permitted of foreign companies in its vast and growing market. Despite impressive economic growth, India faces pressing problems such as significant overpopulation, environmental degradation and extensive poverty. India is one of the country to attend the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The objective of the Convention is to achieve stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.
We established our own Indian company, Maris Environment Projects India (MEPI) Private Limited. MEPI. It was established by environmental Awareness, and focuses on Indian industries and their operations. MEPI carries the same mission as Maris Projects B.V., which is converting waste into products/energy. Together with the leading leather industries in Unnao, MEPI is setting a fleshing disposal project up.
