Pune: City-based Rudra Solutions collects plastic bottles, polythene bags, food packages, soiled plastic etc and turns it into fuel to run generators and boilers. 
The firm is presently collecting these waste products from around 1,300 households in various parts of the city. 
The firm's activities are a boon for the city as, despite a ban on plastic bags below 50 microns, their use is rampant. Besides this, there are other plastic products which are used in households and later thrown away. 
Rudra Solutions devised a mechanism to convert the plastic waste into poly fuel through a process called Gasolysis. 
A plant with the capacity to process around 200 kg of plastic every day has been set up at Jejuri. 
"We have been successful in the disintegration of all kinds of plastic like bottles, lower microns bags, food pouches, wrappers, cable covers and even tyres. We are collecting plastic waste from around 1,300 households in Aundh, Model Colony, Viman Nagar, Kothrud and Prabhat Road. We ask the residents to keep the plastic and we pick it up free of cost," said Medha Tadpatrikar. 
The poly fuel generated from the waste is used in gensets and can also light up local parks or street lights. 
"At present, we are selling the fuel to genset users and for boilers which are otherwise run on diesel etc. Poly fuel is cheaper compared to other fuels and can be used for other purposes as well and trials are on to test it," said Tadpatrikar.
