Waste-to-energy plant planned in Selangor

YTL Power International Bhd and KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd will develop a waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Selangor, Malaysia.

The plant, located in Rawang, is expected to cost around RM4.5 billion. Additionally, Aurecon Lestari Sdn Bhd will be in charge of  engineering, designing and asses the environmental and social impact of the project. Once operational, the plant will be able to process 2,400 tonnes of  municipal waste per day from Petaling Jaya, Hulu Selangor, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Ampang Jaya and Selayang. The WtE plan is expected to generate a gross capacity of 58 MW. Moreover, the waste generated from the plant will be used for the production of cement.
