BMC’s permit to dispose waste at Deonar landfill extended

According to the Indian Express, Bombay High Court has extended the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) permit to dispose waste at the Deonar landfill until 31 December 2019. As reported in March 2018, the 600 tpd WtE facility planned to be built at the site is facing yet another delay. The bidding deadline was once more postponed until the end of March because the bidders had asked for some more time to evaluate the caloric value (CV) of the waste at the site in Deonar. BMC has started the tendering process last year but only 3 to 4 bidders have expressed their interest in the project.
