That’s what is emerged during a workshop on waste-to-energy promoted by the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
The Government is aware about the combined responsibility with the population to handle the waste issue through new waste-to-energy plans.
That’s the new green energy way chosen to spread waste-to-energy concept all over the Country finally. Indeed: many plants for many more metropolitan cities, towns and cities. That’s the reason why the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is pushing towards this direction. Actually aware the Country population it’s the first step; planning to promote the projects on the cards is the second. India has a big potential to generate bio gas through effluents, vegetable market waste, cow dung and even paddy straw (that causes pollution on burning). The Government estimates the solid waste generated from the Country has a potential to generate power of 500 mW; although it will be raised to 1.075 mW by 2031 and further to 2.780 mW by 2050. According to the Central Electricity Authority data, India was able to take advantage of 114.08 mW of waste-of-energy potential till August this year.
So let’s start wondering how much power indian’s waste could reach at full potential.
