South Delhi’s Tehkhand Waste to Energy plant will become operational by August next year, according to South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) officials.

The boilers being imported from China are expected to arrive later this year, after several delays.

This will be Delhi’s fourth WtE plant – and SDMC’s second plant – which will process all the 2,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste per day. The facility will be spread over 15 acres near Tehkhand.

According to officials, the Okhla and Tehkhand plant will together produce 400-500 tonnes of ash and burnt waste which will then be dumped at the new engineered landfill site. The areas under SDMC generate a total of 3,600 tonnes of municipal waste every day.
