Haryana’s Minister of Urban Local Bodies (ULB), Dr. Kamal Gupta has launched the construction of India’s largest waste-to-energy (WTE) plant in Gurugram.

Waste management concessionaire, Ecogreen Energy, will build a 25 MW waste-to-energy plant at Bandhwari on 10 acres of land and will treat waste from Gurugram and Faridabad.

Approximately 25 MW of power will be generated from waste on a daily basis. The WTE plant will begin operations in two years. Two boilers with a capacity of 750 TPD each will be installed.

The Haryana government contracted EcoGreen Energy in August 2017 to establish the waste-to-energy plant at Bandhwadi, but the construction process was delayed for a variety of reasons. At the initial stage, a retaining wall will be constructed to prevent the old waste from slipping and to avoid any hindrance in the construction of the waste-to-energy plant, reported ETEnergyWorld.
