First funds released for Nagpur WtE project

The WtE project at the Bhandewadi dumping yard in Nagpur, Maharashtra, has been granted support of Rs 96 crore (about EUR 12.8 million) by the central and the state’s government. Rs 70 crore will be transferred to the Waste-to-Energy project and the remaining Rs 26 crore will be used for the landfill site, procurement of machineries and improvement of garbage collection and transportation. With this financial support, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation should be able to reduce the gate fee to about Rs 400 (EUR 5.3) per ton. The WtE plant in Nagpur should be planned, constructed and operated for 15 years by a consortium of Essel Infraprojects and Hitachi Zosen India. This was reported by The Hitavada.
