PMC appoints IIT-Roorkee for analysis of Ramtekdi Waste-to-Energy plant

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to appoint IIT-Roorkee to conduct a techno-commercial analysis at their new Waste-to-Energy plant in Ramtekdi, Hadapsar, in the state of Maharashtra, at a cost of INR 8.26 lakh (EUR 10,817). As was reported by The Indian Express, the plant faces protests from local residents, who requested the facility to be shut down. The facility is based on combustion and biogas technology. It is able to process 750 tpd of waste. Due to the large amount of waste generated in the city (around 1,600 to 1,700 tons), PMC developed 2 mechanical composting plants, 25 biogas plants, a bioCNG plant, 14 wet waste plant and 3 mechanical composting plants in various parts of the city.
