The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has signed an agreement with Singapore-based AG Dauters Company to set up a waste-to-energy plant in Ghazipur, New Delhi. About 3 acres of land adjacent to the Ghazipur landfill will be provided by EDMC to the company for establishing a plant of 200 metric tonne (mt) capacity on a pilot basis. Its performance will be evaluated for one year and, thereafter, a decision will be taken to increase its capacity to process 1,500 mt garbage per day and extend the agreement for 21 years. The plant is expected to become operational by 2019.
