New WtE project in Bathinda

Jindal Infrastructure Limited (JITF) Company plans to set up an 8 MW solid waste treatment plant in Bathinda, Punjab. The company operates an RDF plant, which processes waste from the city along with 18 other nearby cities. However, due to various challenges after the completion of its Rs 30 crore (EUR 4 million) plant, the plant was not able to measure up to the company’s expectations, thereby leading to the accumulation of a huge loss and a series of objections that cropped up between the company and the Municipal Corporation of Bathinda at the National Green Tribunal (NGT). According to The Tribune, the NGT has now directed the company to install an energy plant with local authorities supplying 500 metric tons of garbage daily. NGT also directed the company to submit a report on the energy plant within 15 days.
