Biomass plants to purchase RDF

Owners of regional biomass plants in India have finally agreed on purchasing refuse-derived fuel from a solid waste management plant in Bathinda, Punjab. As reported by The Tribune, the Indian government agency National Green Tribunal (NGT) has made it mandatory for biomass and other power plants in the region to purchase 30% of the RDF produced at the waste management plant. However, plant owners rejected to buy the RDF due to concerns about the quality in the first place. The agreement followed a report by the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB). Owners of other power plants still refuse to purchase the RDF. The waste management is operated by JTIF company, suffers severe losses as it has problems selling the 30 tons of RDF produced every day.
