The waste-to-energy plant in Ghazipur will soon reopen after being closed for over six months for maintenance. The plant uses 1,400-1,500 metric tonnes of waste and refuse-derived fuel waste (RDF) each day.

East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) was having trouble disposing of fresh waste, which was being placed in the already overburdened Ghazipur landfill, due to maintenance work. Two fires were reported in the area where fresh waste was being placed last month.

Initially, it will be a slow start and the plant is expected to be completely operational by May 15-20 reports The Times of India. Every day, East Delhi creates 2,500-2,700 tonnes of waste.
