KVIC Launches ‘Terracotta Grinder’

  • It requires mixing of only 20% of the terracotta powder with the clay to make a saving of Rs 520.
  • The grinder is expected to reduce the cost of production of the pottery and would avoid a shortage of clay.
  • The grinder will create more job opportunities for the village people (about 900 in a single village).
  • The step will also help to complete the action plan given by the Ministry of Railways to IRCTC to use only environment-friendly terracotta products like Kulhad and glasses in railway premises.
  • KVIC that comes under the Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises, in its Jaipur’s unit, has started its project REPLAN (REducing PLAstic in Nature) in which plastic is mixed with paper raw material in a ratio of 20% (plastic waste) and 80% (pulp).
