waste-to-energy plants, one for each Assembly constituency in its jurisdiction,
are being planned by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation in an attempt to
tackle garbage in a decentralised way. North Delhi Mayor Ravinder Gupta
announced on Friday that 26 plants, which shall use 70 to 100 metric tonnes of
trash per day, were in the pipeline. “We will be initiating work on the first
of these plants as a pilot project by the first week of November. These plants
will require about 1,000 to 1,500 square yards of space, which will be easier to
obtain than the land needed for bigger facilities,” said Mr. Gupta.
