Indian city of Ahmedabad to implement EfW scheme

Indian city of Ahmedabad to implement EfW scheme
The Indian city of Ahmedabad has announced plans to launch a new project converting the city's municipal waste into fuel.

As well as reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill, it is hoped that the scheme will help the city move towards energy self-sufficiency.

The deal, signed between Indian civic company Amedabad Municipal and Japanese waste management and recycling firm Creative, will see the waste turned into pellets that can safely be burned for energy in power generation plants.

One of the largest industrial cities in western India, Amedabad could see its waste output reduced by as much as 800 metric tonnes a day thanks to the scheme, according to the Times of India.

The resultant biofuel would also help to boost the city's production of low-carbon energy.

"Initially, we will be making pellets as fuel. In the next phase, we will be generating electricity too," said Gajendra Pantawane, operations director of Creative.
