BMC to start Deonar WtE project

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to shut down the Mulund landfill site in order to begin the Waste-to-Energy (WtE) project at Deonar. According to civic officials, the recovery of the Mulund landfill should start during 2018-19, resulting in the recovery of 24 hectares of land and bio-mining of about 7 million tons of waste. The Asian Age reported, that the recovery project was awarded to Prakash Constrowell Ltd and EB Enviro Biotech Pvt for INR 7 billion (EUR 91 million). A civic official stated that the Deonar WtE project has been restructured. There will now be an initial construct of a 600 tpd plant in Deonar. Depending on its success, another 2 WE plants of the same capacity will then be constructed in the same location. Estimates provide for a provided budget of INR 1.1 billion (EUR 13 million).
