Guntur WtE plant completion delayed

The completion of the ongoing construction of a 15 MW Waste-to-Energy facility in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, has been reported to be delayed. The plant is being developed to process solid waste collected from nine Urban Local Bodies (ULBs). According to The Hindu, it is now expected to go online by April 2020, contrary to the initial plan of December 2019. The delay is attributed to a lack of manpower during the general elections and poor sand supply. The 1,200-tpd capacity plant is being constructed by Jindal Ecopolis in a public-private partnership with an investment sum of INR 2.7 billion.
