The Noida and Greater Noida authorities in India have signed separate agreements with the National Thermal Power Corporation and Indo Environ Integrated Solutions to set up a mega waste-to-energy plant on 30 acres of land in Astoli to treat waste from the twin cities. The NTPC will set up a plant with a capacity to recycle 1,110 metric tonnes of wet and dry waste daily and produce green charcoal, while Indo Environ Integrated Solutions will set up a plant to make compressed gas to be sold in the market. The authorities will not share in the profits from the business, and the two agencies will be responsible for setting up, maintaining, and running the plant.

Currently, Noida produces 600 metric tonnes of waste daily while Greater Noida produces 250 tonnes of waste, reports Hindustan Times.
