Agreement signed for development of waste-to-energy plant in Kerala

The Sulthan Bathery Municipal Corporation in Kerala has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Didask Bioenergy Private Limited for development of a waste-to-energy plant in the town. The plant will have the capacity to process five tonnes of waste per day, and is expected to generate up to 1,200 units of electricity in the process. Didask Bioenergy Private Limited will share the profits from the sale of power with the municipal corporation for a period of 15 years. After this period, the plant will be transferred to the civic agency. The construction of the project is expected to commence in January 2017.
