Solid Waste Management

Projects that convert Waste to energy are set to become increasingly prevalent in India. Such projects would gain popularity, in the light of urban local bodies trying to comply with the Municipal Solid Wastes (Management and Handling) Rules, 2000 and preferential tariff rules of the CERC. Technology for conversion of waste to energy though common in Europe, has yet to gain acceptance in India.

We finance such projects that demonstrate visibility in terms of contractual arrangement for supply of municipal solid waste (with specific organic content) between the urban local body and the company, arrangements for sale of power, compost and other by-products, and disposal of the residual waste.

We have financed:

  • A project involving conversion of 300 tpd of municipal solid waste into 5 megawatts of power and 75 tpd tons of compost.
