Mahindra to support power plant from wet waste in Ongole, AP

The Ongole Municipal Corporation (OMC) has joined hands with Mahindra & Mahindra to set up a facility to generate power from wet waste.

Around 85 to 100 tons of wet and dry waste is produced daily within OMC limits. However, the Corporation lacks proper recycling facilities.

Mahindra & Mahindra  operates a similar plant in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. The New Indian Express reports that OMC officials have identified around 13 acre land in Guthikondavaripalem village for the plant. It is being given to Mahindra on a 20-year-lease at the end of which the rights will revert to the civic body.
