Malba is the hindi word for construction and demolition (C&D) waste. Malba Project is an attempt to raise awareness about this often-ignored stream of waste. C&D waste makes up a third of the solid waste generated globally. It is a key piece in our zero-waste, resource efficient future. We’re here to talk about the how, what, and why. So let’s deconstruct the construction sector, one brick at a time.


Malba Project was established in September 2021 with a vision to to spread awareness about the often overlooked, yet highly critical construction and demolition (C&D) waste stream.


C&D waste, or 'Malba' as we call it in Hindi, accounts for 30-40% of the solid waste generated globally. It contributes significantly to air and water pollution, and should be a topic of grave concern for developing urban metropolises around the world.

While Malba Project will always be about research and advocacy, we are also since building solutions to tackle this problem. We are currently focusing on 2 problems:


1. Prevention of illegal dumping

2. Streamlining C&D waste collection
