Hyderabad: In a bid to develop a sustainable future for Hyderabad, the Telangana government has taken a unique initiative of setting up five waste-to-energy plants across Hyderabad. The first waste-to-energy facility at Dundigal with a capacity of 14.5 MW is expected to be commissioned by March this year. GHMC officials said on Monday that the construction of the plant is nearing completion and we are expecting it to be commissioned by March 15. Another environmental protection project proposed by the state government involves a 24 MW plant at Jawaharnagar.
Earlier in August 2020, a 19.8 MW capacity waste-to-energy plant at Jawaharnagar was commissioned and later upgraded from 24 MW to 48 MW in June 2022.
GHMC is also planning to revive a similar plant located at Bibinagar. Though the construction of the plant was completed in 2018, the company that set it up was unable to make it operational due to various reasons. Recently Ever Enviro Resource Management Pvt Ltd has taken over the project and is planning to give it a facelift.
In addition, GHMC has proposed to set up another waste-to-energy facility of 12 MW capacity at Yacharam in Ibrahimpatnam. The land was acquired by M/s SVGPPL and is currently in the final stages. It is expected to be operational by the end of the financial year 2023-24.
