According to The Times of India, the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) is to build an INR 200 million (EUR 2.48 million) sorting plant at its site in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. The source does neither comment on the types of waste the plant will process, nor on expected capacities. However, the source indicates that the city of Indore produces about 450 tonnes of eligible waste per day, and the plant will be capable of processing all kinds of dry waste. IMC will account for 30 percent of the costs, whereas the machine supplier who will operate the plant for 20 years bears 70 percent of the costs. After this time the plant which is expected to be operational by the end of 2018 will be in possession of IMC.
