An Advanced & Autonomous Waste Management System BACKGROUND Everyday tonnes of waste water deposits such as industrial wastes, oil spills, sea transportation waste, agricultural waste, sewage, plastic, animal remains are dumped as untreated waste into waters. As a result, inland water by bodies such as lakes, rivers and seas (or AASTHA VERMA Chief Operating oceans) are polluted. Officer, Tardid

These untreated waters contain phosphorus compounds, nitrogen compounds, arsenic, sulphide compounds, etc. These chemical components effect the quality of the water, which leads to several endangered aquatic species, marine bio life, marine plants and their habitants and finally it is a threat to human life. At present only, 2.5 % of fresh water is available on this planet. Drinking this polluted water leads to diseases. On average, 15 million children, under the age of five are dying. According to UNICEF, on average globally, more than 3000 children are dying everyday due to consumption of contaminated drinking water. Oil spills into the oceans or coastal waters effects the marine ecosystem. The spills primarily happen due to release of crude oil from tankers, platforms, refinery, storage facilities, underwater pipelines, drilling rigs and wells, which create a significant cost to the operator, environment and people living around this spilling area. For example, the Deep20

water Horizon rig suffered an explosion on April 20, 2010 which cost BP about $56.4 billion. Similarly, in Ennore coast in Chennai on January 28, 2017 two cargo ships collided which caused oil to spill into the sea. The oil spill spread was about 34 km. The biggest challenge here is monitoring oil spill then identifying the area of oil spread, subsequently, estimating the damage to the environment. Finally, cleaning the Oil spill to minimize the effect. The challenges to effective and efficient waste management are enormous. At present waste and pollutants are monitored and managed globally through a systematic casual approach. IOTCHAIN is committed to address this situation with an advanced and autonomous solution, which is the Blockchain Drone. The Blockchain Drone can identify real-time pollutant levels quickly and easily. Further, it can be used for cleaning the water bodies to improve water quality. The proposed drone based autonomous waste management system is quite superior in nature with respect to the other solutions available, for treating bigger and remotely accessible areas. Besides that, the monitoring, identification and treatment is done by the drone. As a result, these tasks become highly safe to the personnel involved in this process. The proposed solution is robust and flexible. Therefore, it is easily adaptable for ocean and inland water bodies such
