Food processing is the necessary conversion of raw materials to edible, functional, and culturally acceptable food products, and is an Important link between production and consumption within the food value chain. Without increased attention to the role of food processing for a maintainable food supply, we are unlikely to succeed in addressing the mounting challenges in delivering sustainable diets for all.

The absence of a sustainable food processing sector contributes to the excessive food wastage in our country. Focus on food processing and preservation infrastructure can reduce this burden.

Special Food Processing Zones

Development of Special Food Processing Zones provide modern infrastructure facilities for the food processing along the value chain from the farm to the market and project also takes into consideration creation of food processing infrastructure near the farm.

SPFZ enhance the market opportunities for the farmers and provides following benefits:

  • Enhance farmer’s income.
  • Minimize wastage at all stages in the food processing chain.
  • Introduction of modern technology.
  • Encourage R&D.

As a part of the project proposed by the Telangana State Govt. Core CarbonX Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is preparing a Master Plan and a Detailed Project Report for SPFZ in three districts Mancherial, Rajanna Sircilla and Jangaon.

We are working with governments to develop the Special Food Processing Zones. Join us.

The CBBOs help in registration and training of FPOs, appointment of professional expertise, assist in regular interface with stakeholders, assist in facilitating traceability and provide market-linkage for products both local and global.

Small Farmer Agri-business Consortium (SFAC) has designed a three tier structure to promote the Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs). The structure will have cluster-based business organisations (CBBOs), which will play the function of resource institutes (RIs) on the ground-level. CBBOs also work with the state governments to ensure that FPOs get all the benefits that are accorded to cooperatives.

Ensuring Better Incomes

Small farmers/producers do not have the volume individually (both inputs and produce) to get the benefit of economies of scale. Besides, in agricultural marketing, there is a long chain of intermediaries who very often work non-transparently leading to the situation where the producer receives only a small part of the value that the ultimate consumer pays. Through aggregation, the primary producers can avail the benefit of economies of scale.

We are working with both government and non-government organisations to establish business plans for farmers. Join us.

CCX project assess the situation of women in project districts and establish benchmark / baseline indicators that have a bearing with clear monitoring and evaluation plan and form a platform for impact evaluation.

In 2016, CARE India Women centred ICS adoption model was pilot tested by CARE India Solutions for Sustainable Development (CISSD) in 3 districts across Odisha and Chhattisgarh. The project sought to promote sustainable adoption of Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) as a clean cooking energy solution among forest-dependent households in Chhattisgarh and Odisha. In other words, this project seeks to increase the adoption of sustainable lifestyles among Forest Dwelling Households (FDHs) in the Indian State of Odisha and Chhattisgarh.

Assessing the impact

The study established a baseline against which the project intended to measure its performance for different indicators, which are in line with the project log frame. The project also looked at contributing to the women empowerment process through Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) ‘Intervention’.

We are working with both government and non-government organisations to enhance the usage of improved cookstoves.

CCX project on conservation and development of Mangrove at Ennore creek helped to increase the resilience to climate change and improve livelihoods through adaptive co-management of mangroves and associated ecosystems.

Mangroves are threatened as a result of increasing coastal population, settlements and Industries, unsustainable coastal development and land-based activities. The combination of these with natural forces have impelled climate change impacts. Out of ignorance of their immeasurable values, mangroves are being damaged, and are also treated as some waste reservoirs.

Improving Lives

  • Waste Management and Pollution Control
  • Setting up Mangrove Nurseries
  • Creating livelihoods for local communities

Restoring Livelihood

While it meant conservation of Mangroves, the restoration also helps in enhancing the livelihoods of the coastal communities at various levels leading to economic growth. A platform for carbon ecosystem conservation, restoration and scientific research and development known as Ennore Mangrove Forum has also been established.

We are working with governments to restore the ecosystem of Mangroves. Join us.

Climate change is emerging as a threat to agriculture, food security and livelihoods of the farmers and dependent communities in Bhutan. The issues related to climate change and its impact on agriculture are complex and require a comprehensive understanding.

Bhutan, being one of the smallest countries whose economy is majorly based on agriculture, livestock and forests, is particularly vulnerable to climate change due to its topography. There will be an increased likelihood of a potent threat to agriculture in general and food security in particular.

Assessing Risks

The CCX study helps to demonstrate a methodology to assess and map the composite climate risk of agriculture to climate variability and changes in Bhutan.

Adapting to Climate Change

The negative effects of climate change can be mitigated by developing some adaptation measures. While Technology is the primary driver, for overall climate change adaptation, awareness and capacity building among all stakeholders, from farmers to policymakers, are critical.

We are working with governments to assess the impacts of climate change. Join us.

Energy efficient cookstoves in the Republic of Myanmar help families live better lives: less pollution, as well as augment incomes.

Families in Myanmar used traditional methods – either open fire or three-stone method for cooking. These were fairly inefficient at converting energy into heat for cooking. Fuel is wasted, as heat is allowed to escape into the open air. These are unhealthy too; they cause diseases like bronchitis and pneumonia.

Improving Lives

The Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) have been designed to provide an enclosure for the fire to reduce the loss of radiant heat, protect it against wind and increase heat transfer, thereby increasing efficiency.

Economic Advancement

While it also meant faster cooking, the cookstoves helped save time and fuel, cleaner pans, kitchen walls and health expenditure. Carbon credits also augmented the income of these families leading to economic advancement

We are working with other governments to widen the usage of improved cookstoves (ICS). Join us.

Industrial effluents released into adjoining water sources alter latter’s physicochemical composition, changing the water’s quality and making it non-potable and toxic to organisms.

CCX project helped in the Identification of waste water flow from industries into the water bodies thus enabling the mitigation of pollution of water bodies and enhancing the quality of groundwater in the area.

The industries located around the Isnapur lake are releasing their polluted effluents directly into the lake and indirectly into the Nakkavagu tributary. Due to seepage and infiltration of the polluted water bodies/drains, the groundwater and drinking water sources in the area is highly contaminated.

Mitigating Pollution:

Identification and quantification of the sources of industrial effluents from Telangana state industrial infrastructure corporation (TSIIC) Industrial Parks located in the catchment of the Isnapur Lake helps to develop feasible and cost-effective intervention measure(s) in the Industrial parks for reducing water pollution in the water bodies. CCX also helped in the preparation of  the action plan for implementation of remedial intervention measures for preventing the discharge of untreated effluents into the water bodies.

We are working with the governments to identify and mitigate the causes of pollution. Join us.

Strengthening the knowledge base of government officials to effectively implement Swachh Bharat Mission: Bridging gaps and enhancing implementation.

 

After the introduction of Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), Capacity building of government functionaries as well as of other stakeholders under SBM-U has been one of the main challenges. In order to build the capacity of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) officials and to manage sanitation issues at the ULB level, in order to address these emerging issues and challenges, the capacity of ULBs officials must be strengthened to enable them to play their role and shoulder their responsibilities efficiently at the ULB level.

Bridging Gaps

The Exposure workshops have been designed by CCX team to bridge the gap in knowledge and information to enable ULB officials to ensure effective solid waste management at ULB level and sustaining it on a long term basis. Institutions of high repute and experience have been engaged in working on imparting training and in other activities to build capacities of ULB officials.

We are working with various governments to widen the knowledge of personnel. Join us.

Seepage of Solid Waste into underlying soil and water, contaminates both. This waste rots and decomposes, and produces harmful greenhouse gases (CO2 & Methane) contributing to global warming. Land filling of solid waste is the most practiced method worldwide resulting in landfill pollution and has wider effects on human health as well as on Environment. Methane that is generated due to solid waste is the leading cause of fires at landfills, resulting in garbage burning and air pollution.

 

To overcome Landfill pollution, Rourkela Municipal Corporation, Orissa engaged CCX team for below:

  • Evaluation of landfill facility for Disposal of Municipal Solid Waste and Detailed Project Report (DPR) on Landfill waste management.
  • BID process management for Construction of Scientific Sanitary Landfill Site.
  • Process Management for Bioremediation of existing Dumping site. 

*A Scientific Landfill minimizes the risk of waste-generated pollutants seeping underground and reduces the generation of methane that can light up the garbage.
This reduces the risk of environmental or health hazards tremendously.*

CCX team has been working with many state government agencies across India on such environmental sustainable programs. Join us.
