KVIC launched ‘Terracotta Grinder’ to reuse wasted pottery

Never refuse to reuse is the new motto of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) that has launched a pioneering method to recycle pieces of pottery and terracotta items.
The KVIC’s first-ever terracotta grinder, gifted to potter Bindu in Sewapuri here on Monday, will pound and pulverise broken or damaged earthenware, which will then be mixed with clay and reused. The recycling method will not only resolve the clay crisis and reduce the cost of production, but will also make the end products more durable.
