Three new WtE plants to come up in Hyderabad

Three new waste-to-energy (WtE) plants are in the pipeline in Hyderabad. New plants are to come up in Bibinagar, Yacharam and a 14.5 mw WtE plant at Dundigal.

According to officials quoted in The Hans India, the quantity of waste treated and disposed in tonnes per day on an average is increasing constantly every year in Hyderabad. From 2,200 tonnes of waste in 2012-13 to 5,900 tonnes in 2020-2021, the waste disposal is three times higher, which can generate more energy with the help of WtE plant.
