Gujarat: Waste-to-energy plant to be ready in Ahmedabad by end of the year

The waste-to-energy plant, which is being set up by Abelleon Clean Energy, will begin operation by the end of 2021. This is part of city’s zero-waste strategy to generate power from waste with a 14 MW plant in Gyaspur near Pirana.

The power generated from the plant will be fed into the national power grid. It will convert 1,000 metric tonnes of waste into energy daily. Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has given 13 acres of land for the project.

The AMC stated that the project was part of zero-waste strategy to reduce burden on Pirana. The plant, according to AMC, will be using the latest technology and will follow the European standard to generate energy.

The AMC said it is setting up a similar plant which will also have the capacity to convert 1,000 MT of garbage. The AMC plans to set up a third plant and has sought expression of interest.

The city generated nearly 4,500MT of waste, including 500MT of construction waste produced while making paver blocks. The AMC will only use kitchen and garden waste and convert it into energy.
