According to The Times of India, the central government of India has reportedly approved a high-temperature hydrolysis WtE plant to be built in Roorkee, Uttarkhand. It was said that the facility would treat around 550 tpd of unsegregated commercial and municipal solid waste. Plant operations are planned to be handled by Oman-based company New Centre Energy (NCE), which was said to invest INR 18 billion (USD 270 million) in the project. The technology should be provided by an unnamed German company. It was claimed that the plant would be operational within 10 months. However, the State Infrastructure Development Corporation of Uttarakhand (SIDCUL) has yet to award a contract to NCE.
