The Phase one involves creating intermediary structures between the plant and the ash pond. Existing pipelines will be extended to incorporate a system that segregates ash from the slurry before reaching the pond with underground filtration units with sedimentation tanks; each will collect and separate bottom ash for direct truck collection while purifying water through a centrifugal filtration system, channeling it to a new pond. This phase also includes enhancing the site’s street network for improved public experience.
The phase two focuses on remediating the ash pond by using 30% of the existing bottom ash mixed with soil to form island mounds. These islands will undergo phytoremediation, fostering plant growth and transforming the area into a productive landscape.
The core idea here is to create unobtrusive architectural solutions as intermediaries within the larger landscape, effectively managing industrial waste in alignment with the thermal power plant’s waste management.
