Ramky to set up 40 MW waste-to-energy project

Ramky Enviro Engineers would set up a 40 MW power plant in at the Jawaharnagar dump yard in Kapra area of Hyderabad using the 3,100 tonne of municipal solid waste generated each day in the city.  

Recently, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) secured approval for the project, which would be executed under public, private partnership mode.


The city corporation stresses on the need to manage better waste and also treat water for recycling where ever possible. The centre and state governments need to provide necessary funds to municipal bodies to tackle solid waste and water pollution.


Expecting the urban local bodies to generate their own funds through property tax and other methods without providing any portion of taxes collected does not happen anywhere in the world, Mittal said.


Once the uniform Goods & Services Tax comes into being in the country, the governments should think of providing one to 1.5 per cent of revenue to the municipal bodies towards meeting capital costs for sustainable development technology, he added.


AK Parida, Director General of Environment Protection & Training Institute of India, said the challenge for the country and the industry was to ensure sustainable growth of 8-9 per cent.
