Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE -

A study by the IUCN es­ti­mates that 600 vul­tures con­sume more an­i­mal waste than a medium util­ity plant re­quired to dis­pose it

A plant pro­cesses 1,64,400 kg of meat in a year, whereas the amount con- sumed by 600 vul­tures in a year is be­tween 115,200 kg to 172,800 kg

The plant is val­ued at ` 6.7cr in ru­ral ar­eas and ` 7.9cr in ur­ban ar­eas. This gives a vul­ture a value of ` 5.85 lakh in ru­ral and ` 6.96 lakh in ur­ban ar­eas.
