There are about 4000 Marble mines and 1100 Gang saws (cutting units) in Rajasthan. Around 90% marble production out of the world's marble production quarried from India and approximately 85% marble production of the India’s total marble production is quarried from Rajasthan. There is a considerable waste generated during mining and processing besides main product of marble. Ingredients of 70% Marble waste generated during quarrying or mining and tiling of marble blocks are irregular boulders, under sized stone pieces along with Marble slurry. This is most important to efficiently handling of marble wastes i.e. scientific dumping. As we know that Marble slurry is mixed in water. A huge quantity of water is applied in cutting of stone pieces. So proper dewatering in filter press and disposal is essential. 5000,000 tons slurry is generated annually which contains 4000,000 tons of water. Hence an effort should be made to get the maximum possible water out of it for recycling and slurry be converted in the form of cakes. These Marble slurry Cakes can far more easily be disposed filling the wasteland readily available in future as construction site. This will help in reduction of water demand by reutilization of water, proper disposal of slurry and lowering the damage to eco-system.
