Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and Selco International, a Bangalore-based waste management company, recently tied up to build a waste-to-energy plant.
The airport’s operating company, Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), and Selco will build a $30 million, 10MW plant that will generate energy from municipal waste.
It will be located at the town of Ghazipur in East Delhi with an expected completion date of late-2010. The plant will be capable of processing 1,300 tonnes of municipal waste daily. A project design document states that the plant will convert waste into eco-friendly fluff and pellets that would be fed into a boiler to produce power.
