Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

From Waste to Wealth ?

On 29 March 2016 , the Environ Ministry ( Central Government ) notified ,

" The Construction and Demolition Waste Management Rules "

On this occasion , environment minister , Shri Javadekar said :

*  It is an initiative to tackle effectively the issue of pollution. Without any rules, it is dumped in open spaces , drains, rivers, forest areas, landfills and roadside

The basis of our new rules is recover , recycle and reuse

We can make tiles , pipes from it

Segregating construction and demolition waste and depositing it to the collection centres for processing will now be the responsibility of every waste generator  "

Dear Shri Javadekarji :

Your initiative to reuse construction / demolition waste has the potential to solve the problem of constructing 50 million " affordable homes " by 2020

And , I think , the Chinese firm WinSun Design Decoration Company, should be made an EQUITY partner in a SPV to construct these homes

Here is why :

 #   On 29 March 2014 , WinSun constructed 10 , 3D printed houses ( 200 sq meter each) in Shanghai, each costing $ 4,800 (approx Rs 3 lakh)

#    On 17 July 2015 , using its 3D printing technology , WinSun built a 2 storey villa , in just 3 HOURS  !

#    WinSun holds  98  patents for CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS

#    For 3D printing of houses , WinSun , mostly uses recycled construction materials


      *    30% -60 % of building materials

      *    70 % of production time

      *    80 %  of construction cost

#   Egypt Government has placed on WinSun , an order for supplying 20,000 pre-fabricated , 3D printed houses

#   In Egypt , WinSun will establish 12 Dream Factories ( to build pre-fabricated houses ) , within 2 years

     These factories will mostly use  DESERT SAND  as its main construction material , which was found ideal for 3D printing of houses

#   In next 3 years , WinSun will set up ( in JV with local parties ) , similar factories in 20 countries , including Saudi Arabia , UAE , Qatar , Mexico , S. Korea , Russia , Morocco , Tunisia , and USA

With the current slowdown in economies around the world and in the Chinese economy in particular , I think WinSun should be more than happy to invest in India

What Fox Conn is doing to transform the Electronic Industry in India , I believe , WinSun can do for the Construction Industry
