Chief minister Manohar Parrikar on Thursday, while addressing the Legislative Assembly, said that the state government’s ambitious project of converting non-recyclable plastic waste into fuel would become a reality in the next seven months.
 
“We are coming with a project to convert plastic into heavy fuel, such as diesel. The work on this plant is at an advanced stage in Pernem and should start in six to seven months,” Parrikar said while responding to the cut motions moved by the opposition in the Legislative Assembly.
 
However, the project was derailed due to problems in the early stages. 
 
The foundation stone for the plant was laid during the earlier BJP-led government. The plant is now being constructed by the Goa state urban development agency (GSUDA) in collaboration with Tamil Nadu-based M K Aromatics and the Pernem municipal council (PMC), and will come up on an expansive 8,000sqm of leased land at the Pernem garbage treatment plant.
