A delegation of officials from the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon who visited the waste-to-energy (WTE) plant in Sonipat have concluded that more land area is required to set up a sanitary landfill and wet waste composting in order for the WTE plant in Bandhwari to be successful.
According to the officials, the Sonipat plant, spread over 40 acres (with 20 acres each for sanitary landfill and wet waste composting) is operating at full capacity and producing electricity. In contrast, Ecogreen has only 10 acres of land for the WtE plant and at least 50-60 acres of additional land will be required to set up a sanitary landfill and wet waste composting.
According to The Times of India, the MCG officials were visiting the Sonipat site to assess how the Bandhwari plant can benefit from experiences with the Sonipat WTE set-up.
