Mumbai to set Waste-to-Energy plants

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has proposed to set up at least 10 waste-to-energy plants to process 8,000 metric tonnes of garbage generated every day in the city. Each plant will require five to six acres to process at least 1,000 metric tonnes of garbage. Some processing plants will be set up at the existing dumping grounds in Deonar, Mulund and Kanjurmarg while land in Mahim-Dharavi will process the island city’s waste.

Tenders have already been floated for the project in which the Corporation will own 50% stake. To ensure minimum transportation of the garbage, the processing plants will have to be in the island city and the Western suburbs.

In Deonar, 60 hectares will be converted into a green hillock after scientifically treating waste and ensuring outlets for gas, which will then be flared at the Gorai dumping ground. Of the remaining 65 hectares, 20 will be used for the plants to process the waste and around 10 hectares as a landfill for the inert material generated from the plant. In Kanjurmarg, 65 hectares will be used for the plant and in Mulund it will be 10 hectares.
