The Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation (GMC) has entered an agreement with the management of a 6 MW Waste-to-Energy plant in Pilakhuwa, Hapur, as The Times of India reported. The agreement will see GMC transport over 200 tons of municipal solid waste daily to the neighbouring plant for use as Waste-to-Energy. This move is part of GMC’s effort to streamline the solid waste management system in the city pending the construction of its own WtE plant in Galand. The GMC has invited a request for proposals for the proposed Galand plant with due date on 21 November 2017.
