East Delhi civic body takes steps towards building new waste facility

The East Delhi Municipal Corporation has started the process of setting up an integrated waste-processing facility at the 42-acre Ghonda Gujran site.

A waste-to-energy plant is expected to come up at Ghonda Gujran, followed by a bio-methanation plant, an aerobic composter and a small construction and demolition waste plant. The Times of India reports that the project will consume 2000 tonne of waste daily.

Last year, a joint venture was formed with NTPC to implement the project. A tentative deadline for the project is December 2021. So far, East Delhi waste goes to the over-saturated Ghazipur landfill and the Ghonda Gujran project is expected to ease pressure at Ghazipur.
