The Okhla Waste To Energy (WTE) plant sits in 15
acres of prime land, between the Apollo Hospital and the offices of country's
top scientific research body, CSIR. In close proximity to the plant are Holy
Family and Escorts Heart Institute, and Sukhdev Vihar, with a large residential
population comprising doctors and engineers. Not too far are Friends Colony and
Maharini Bagh where some of the rich and well connected people of Delhi live.
It is easy to smell the plant from a distance, even beforeyou begin to see it.
