The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) is building a waste-to-energy plant on the Design, Build, Finance, Operate, and Transfer (DBFOT) model at its Vashi Sewage Treatment Plant (STP).

The city’s wet organic waste will be utilized at the Bio-CNG plant, according to the local body. The CNG produced by the plant will be sold at a reduced rate to NMMT and NMMC vehicles.

Every day, around 100 tonnes of moist organic waste is produced at hotels, institutional canteens, slaughterhouses, butcher stores, cold storage, APMC, and other locations. The majority of them are currently disposed of in a scientific manner at a dumping yard.

The municipal government has planned to build two 50-tonne-per-day (TPD) Bio-CNG plants using the DBFOT PPP model. A tender has already been issued in this regard.
