Headed by Colonel (retd.) Suresh Rege and his son Sameer Rege, Mailhem Ikos has set up more than 300 plants across the country with many more in the pipeline. Speaking on the award, Colonel Rege said, “ This is a prestigious platform, and it is humbling experience for us to be recognized, more so by the Prime Minister of our country. Over the last two decades, we have worked hard to advocate the message of waste to wealth, and this recognition fuels this fire even further.”
Mailhem, along with the JV French Partner Lhotellier Ikos Group, is currently in the process of setting up large size waste to energy plants and carrying out the capping of dumpsites and landfills.
