The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation is planning two additional Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facilities at Pyaranagar in Jinnaram and Dundigal, both in Medak.
The 14.5-megawatt Dundigal WTE plant will handle about 1,000 TPD of garbage. Waste Management firm Re Sustainability will begin operating the Dundigal facility in January 2023. Senior officials told The Times of India that equipment testing is presently underway and the project is practically finished.
On the outskirts of the city, in Pyaranagar, a second WtE plant with a 24 MW capacity is anticipated to be built. Re Sustainability is seeking the forest department’s permission to authorize a 600-meter road to the site. Once all necessary approvals, including those from the ministry of environment and forest, have been obtained, the projects will move forward.
A 24 MW WTE plant with a two-boiler system is currently operating at full capacity in Jawahar Nagar. To scale up the current activities, a second 24 MW boiler is being erected next to the present one
