Abstract

Techno-economic feasibility of the best available Waste to Energy (WTE) technologies across the world were studied for 75 Indian cities. Secondary data on Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) characteristics for all cities were compiled from three well-known authentic databases, viz. NEERI (National Environmental Engineering Research Institute, Nagpur), NSWAI (National Solid Waste Association of India) and CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board, New Delhi). We observed a definite relationship between the calorific value of waste generated and the biodegradable and paper fractions present in waste. The authors made an attempt to calculate WTE potential from MSW for a majority of Indian cities, along with the state-wise potential. Tariff charged by EU countries were compared with some states and operating plants in India. The authors also recommend what needs to be done in terms of policy modifications and rules that need to be adhered to for MSW management in order to make WTE a success for India.

Keywords: Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Techno-Economic feasibility, Waste-to-Energy (WTE)
