CSE facilitates a solution to Agra's petha waste

Apart from Taj Mahal, it is “Agra Ka Petha” that identifies the iconic tourist destination to the whole world. The city was challenged to deal with the waste that was getting generated in the process of making the sweet delicacy. The City Government specifically requested the Centre for Science and Environment to study the situation and recommend solutions. CSE study revealed that about 130 petha making units were producing 17.8 tonne of petha waste which is nothing but the peels and unused pulps of raw petha that was finding its ways in dhalaos and storm water drainage system to cause problems.
