improves air quality, reduces maintenance cost as well as energy costs. Real time simulation of cooling and
energy requirements, emergency response and safety requirements etc, can all be done by the DCS control
centre via a software interface system.
6. Introduction of IOT in Solid Waste Management program → Automatic collection, transportation and
segregation. Minimizes human intervention, impact on environment. Computer controlled Access is given.
