NGT orders start-up of Shimla WtE plant

As reported by The Economic Times, India’s National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked Elephant Energy Private Ltd (EEPL) to start operations at its Shimla WtE plant until 15 December. The firm is developing the facility on behalf of the Shimla Municipal Corporation (SMC). If EEPL fails to comply, it will reportedly face legal consequences. According to earlier sources, the Shimla WtE plant has a treatment capacity of 70 tpd of solid waste, generating 2 MW. However, it is neither clear whether the facility has already been commissioned nor what kind of technology it uses.
