Further delays at Brahmapuram WtE plant

Construction works at the proposed 10 MW WtE plant in Brahmapuram, Kerala, have been further delayed, because the state’s Environmental Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA), which has to issue the environmental permit for the project, has not been constituted yet. Acccording to The Asian Age, local government officials expect the authority to be constituted within the next weeks. According to project developer GJ Eco Power, the project has already received all other required permits. As reported, the determination of the feed-in tariff already caused a delay of 2 years. The project should be built in 2 phases, with the first one including an RDF bricks producing plant. In the second phase, the WtE gasification plant will be built. Total investment is USD 43 million (INR 2.95 billion).
