Shimla burns waste at Ambuja cement plant

As the WtE plant in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, is still not functional, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked the plant’s private operator to take the garbage of Shimla to the Ambuja cement plant in the Bilaspur district for disposal. During peak tourist season, Shimla generates 85 to 90 metric tons of municipal solid waste per day, while in off-season 65 to 70 metric tons are produced daily. According to The Times of India, the Waste-to-Energy plant has a capacity to use 100 metric tons of waste to generate 1.7 MW to 2 MW of electricity. The company executing the project would run the plant for 40 years.
