PMC to relaunch Patna WtE tender

According to Telegraph India, the Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) has announced that the municipality terminated the contract with the agency, which had been assigned to establish a Waste-to-Energy plant in Patna, Bihar. According to Patna’s mayor, Sita Sahu, the contract was terminated on 30 May due to non-visible progress within the last 4 years towards the facility establishment. As earlier reported by ecoprog, Sunhil Hitech Engineers Ltd was contracted to build the 10 MWel facility. The mayor further stated that a fresh tender would be floated to award the work within the next 15 days. According to the source, a US agency had given a proposal for producing 6,500 MWh of electricity annually, 200 million litres of biodiesel and 300 million litres of drinking water using 1,500 tpd of MSW and 600 million litres of wet waste.
