As reported by The Hindu, the Indian capital is speeding up the process of increasing its incineration capacities. In accordance with Delhi’s administration, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation aims at building two new WtE plants in Ghazipur and Tikri Khampur. In both cases, the new facilities would co-process food waste with municipal solid waste. Moreover, the city plans to expand the existing Ghazipur WtE plant. Accordingly, the current intake capacity of 1,300 tpd of waste should be increased by at least 650 to 700 tons. The operator of the plant, IL&FS Company, has already been provided with 10 additional acres of land for this purpose. The expansion works are said to take around three months in total.
