Project Components

Project investments are organized in the following components:

Component 1- Strengthening of Environmental Institutions:  Building Capacity for addressing pollution remediation at state: The objective of this component is to strengthen and integrate the institutional framework, including regulatory policies, management practices, compliance incentives, and performance guidelines, for central and state governments in the remediation of polluted sites.

  • Sub-component 1.a: National Program for the Rehabilitation of Polluted Sites: This sub-component will support the MOEF in the development of the National Program for Rehabilitation of Polluted Sites (NPRPS)


  • Sub-component 1.b: Environmental Compliance Assistance Centers (ECACs): This sub-component will support the establishment of ECACs in the states of AP and WB to pro-actively promote and assist industries with environmental compliance in pollution management


  • Sub-component 1.c: Institutional Capacity Building of State Pollution Control Boards: This sub-component will focus on providing technical assistance and building technical knowledge and skills of SPCBs in conducting risk assessments and guiding remediation actions and for inventorying and characterization of hazardous waste and illegal dumpsites, assessment and preparation of priority contaminated sites, and regulatory best practices and incentive based approaches and stakeholder involvement.

 Component 2 - Investments in Priority Remediation and Environmental Improvements: Rehabilitation of legacy hazardous waste sites:   The component will demonstrate remediation which minimizes to acceptable and safe levels the environment and health risks by containing the migration of the heavy metal and chemical bearing of contaminated soil and groundwater. This component will support AP and WB in the development and implementation of area-based plans which include remediation of orphan polluted sites and/or old municipal dumps (two in each state listed below) and measures for overall environmental improvements in the area and better compliance of the nearby industrial units:


  • Site A: Remediation of Noor Mohammad Kunta, Katedan Industrial Area (KIE) in Ranga Reddy District, Andhra Pradesh
  • Site B:  Remediation of the Dumpsite in Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh
  • Site C: Remediation of Dhapa - old municipal dump site adjacent to East Kolkata Wetlands, West Bengal
  • Site D: Remediation of seven (7) chemically contaminated sites in the District of Hooghly, West Bengal
