The construction work on Moshi Waste-to-Energy (WtE) project is expected to commence by September 2019.
The standing committee of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) sanctioned the project in Maharashtra at a cost of Rs 2,083.6 million in February 2018. It is being developed by the joint venture (JV) of Lara Enviro and Anthony Enviro Private Limited on design, build, operate and transfer (DBOT) basis for a period of 21 years. The PCMC will give six acres of land to the JV for the implementation of the project.
About 700 tonnes per day (tpd) of waste is being generated in PimpriChinchwad, of which 100 tpdwaste will be converted into vermicompost and the remaining inorganic waste will be supplied to the appointed agency for generating around 11.5 MW of electricity through this WtE project.
