The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has completed the tendering process for a new waste-to-energy (WTE) plant in Bawana, with a capacity to process 3,000 tonnes of waste per day. This will be the fifth WTE plant established by the MCD in the city and is expected to become fully operational by April 2026. The plant will have the capacity to consume an additional 20% of waste as required. The MCD is also collaborating with IGL to establish bio-CNG plants at suitable locations. Efforts are being made for 100% source segregation and local processing of waste to reduce the amount sent to landfill sites.
