WtE task force publishes report

As only 19 per cent of India’s MSW is treated (with 170,000 tons being produced daily), a WtE task force has elaborated a report on the technical and financial feasibility of WtE technologies. Besides properly reducing and separating the waste, the report stresses the need for the efficient utilisation of all waste components emphasising on converting combustible waste into RDF. As the concept of public-private partnerships is highly recommended, the report contains a model scheme for PPP-based WtE projects including a viability gap funding of up to 40 per cent. It will be used as a guideline for the new Municipal Waste Rules, as reported by Waste Management.
