ABSTRACT
The rapid rate of urbanization and development has led to increasing plastic waste generation. The quantum of plastic waste in Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is increasing due to increase in population, development activities and changes in the life style. Recently, plastic waste has attracted widespread attention in India, particularly in the last five year. Due to littering habits and throwaway culture of rail passengers and inadequate waste management system / infrastructure, plastic waste disposal continue to be a major problem for the railway authorities. It has been observed that due to an inefficient waste collection and transit system in an Indian Railway, a large amount of plastic wastes are not disposed off completely or fails to reach the recycling/reuse chains. This research work aims at investigating the role of reverse logistic for effective distribution and recycling of waste of PET bottles at Nagpur Railway station. Also to develop a reverse logistic model by applying quantitative research methodology using survey based approach so that this waste can turn it to be a profitable business model for the Indian railway.

ABSTRACT
Reliability analysis plays crucial role in the design process. In order to increase reliability of a system, analysis of failure data is essential. Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a method that directly focuses on the modes of failures. FTA is a graphical representation of the major faults or critical failures associated with a product and the causes for the faults and potential countermeasures. This paper presents the FTA of Lathe Machine. Qualitative and quantitative analysis helps to identify critical design parameters, maintenance suggestions. It also includes how reliability analysis fruitful for Life cycle cost management.

JERS/ Volume IV/ Issue I/ Jan.-March.'2013/09-11

ABSTRACT
This document gives information about gamut comparison of ink jet printers. For carrying this experiment 2 different Printers and same substrate i.e. uncoated paper are taken. Inks used are dye based and pigment based. Gamut comparison implies range of colors which can be reproduced. There are various factors like ink penetration, paper surface properties which affect print density.
