THE BOTRAM PROCESS

We believe that the waste management problem that the country faces needs simple solutions. To tackle 80% of the problem, we have developed the innovative, cost-effective, equitable & replicable BOTRAM SWM Transformation Process, that has delivered successful SWM transformation  to 14 ULBs in India and abroad.

B-O-T-R-A-M is a six-step process that overhauls, fortifies and enables the city’s MSW machinery to deliver a waste management system that is regular, reliable, safe and sustainable, while achieving a resource Recovery potential of 90%.

BOTRAM ACROSS GEOGRAPHIES

BOTRAM was piloted in a small locality of Aurangabad with a population of 5000. Five years later, this process is as relevant and implementable in a small village like Lasur in Aurangabad district as in the coastal Indian city of Ratnagiri and slums of Buenos Aires, Argentina or in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.

Our journey with Solid Waste Management started with a small locality of Sindhi Colony in Aurangabad. Since then, we have worked very closely with Aurangabad Municipal Corporation to bring about a systemic change in its waste management processes.

The Bajaj Majhi City Swachh City campaign was run across the city and was funded Bajaj Auto Pvt. Ltd. Two dry waste sorting centers were also set and managed in this project.                                             April 2018 - ongoing : Second phase of Bajaj Majhi City Swachh City is being implemented in Zone 6, Aurangabad in collaboration with Aurangabad Municipal Corporation and Bajaj Auto Pvt.

Argentina and Bali
We are a global design partner to McKinsey.org - providing consultancy to set up pilot Solid Waste Management projects in Indonesia and Argentina. McKinsey.org is harnessing CRT’s expertise in designing rapid behavior change campaigns, route mapping and optimization for collection systems, partnering with stakeholders in complex systems, implementing Extended Producer Responsibility frameworks, and working with the informal sector to building sustainable, efficient, equitable, and scalable models of solid waste management. The results achieved in both projects have proven beyond a doubt that the BOTRAM process is replicable across geographical and cultural diversities.

This is our pilot project in a rural geography and its successful implementation proves that BOTRAM is relevant and applicable in a rural set up as well. The key highlight of this project was the Kachradaan which encouraged residents of Lasur to donate dry waste to the waste pickers which directly enhanced their livelihood.
