The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), reportedly plans to set up or revamp five Waste-to-Energy plants across Hyderabad.

A 14.5 MW plant currently being constructed in Dundigal is to be commissioned by March 2023. The 19.5 MW Jawaharnagar facility will be expanded to a 48 MW plant.

Moreover, the 11 MW plant in Bibinagar should be revamped and another two plants with 12 MW capacity each will be constructed in Pyaranagar and Yacharam (Ibrahimpatnam). In total, these facilities should be capable of producing 100 MWe from MSW and other wastes from the GHMC area, according to the New Indian Express.

The Bibinagar facility was already completed back in 2018 by the company RDF Power Projects but the promoter IL&FS was dealing with financial difficulties. IL&FS was recently taken over by EverEnviro Resource Management. The plant in Yacharam by SVGPPL should be operational in the financial year 2023-24.
