NDMC Plans 2 Large Waste-To-Energy Plants
As part of the Smart City project, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) plans to become energy-neutral by generating as much power as it consumes by March 2016. After setting up small-scale waste-to-energy plants in its jurisdiction, the civic agency is planning to set up a big plant that will generate about 100MW power in a day. “Our plan is to become energy-neutral by 2016. We plan to set up a waste-to-energy project which will generate 96MW in a day (4MW per hour) from 170 metric tonnes of waste. This will help us achieve our target of 200MW-plus power per day. We plan to set up two such plants,” said Jalaj Shrivastava, chairman, NDMC.
