Delhi Metro to Receive Power from Waste-To-Energy
The Delhi Metro has become the first ever project in India to receive power generated from a Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plant. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has started receiving 2 MW power from a 12 MW capacity waste-to-energy plant in Ghazipur. Approximately DMRC will procure 17.5 million units per annum from the Ghazipur plant.
Waste-To-Energy Plant is a public-private partnership (PPP) plant set up by East Delhi Waste Processing Company Limited (EDWPCL). The plant can process over 1,500 tonnes of waste per day and generate 12 MW of green power. It is the first Euro norms compliant WtE facility. The plant will mitigate over 8 million tons of greenhouse gases over the life of the project. Thus aid in combating global warming.
