New project using waste for electricity in Vijayawada

The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) is formulating plans to renovate the biomethanation plant at Ajit Singh Nagar and use it for electricity production using wet waste. A new biomethanation plant will be set up at Jakkampudi. 

Recently, a team from the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), Austria had visited the Ajit Nagar biomethanation plant where methane gas is currently produced out of vegetable and animal waste. The team suggested that the civic body treat the smoke emanating from the plant as the surrounding areas may become polluted.

The New Indian Express quoted VMC superintendent engineer (Projects) JV Rama Krishna as saying that proposals for a new biomethanation plant at Jakkampudi will be drafted soon and tenders will be invited shortly.
