BMC shortlists companies for WTE

As a sequel to the expression of interests by a group of Indian and foreign companies, including those from France, Canada, Sweden and Germany to generate power from waste, the BMC is going to launch a pilot project in Kanjurmarg, Mulund and Deonar.

The team of BMC officials also made visits to Delhi and Pune to study how waste-based energy stations are functioning there. Altogether 31 Indian and foreign companies have been shortlisted to commercially run the power projects from nearly 8000 tonnes of urban waste daily generated in the metropolis. According to the BMC sources, permission would be sought from Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission to commercially sell the energy whose generation technology can be anything, including bio-methanization process, depending upon the company awarded the contract.
