13 Aug

The first Solid waste to Power project in India will be set-up in Kanpur
The Energy will be produced from Refuse derived Fuel

Kanpur Municipal Corporation, with a view on environment and for effective management and disposal of the solid waste, has allotted an end-to-end integrated project to A2Z Infrastructure. Under this mandate A2Z Infrastructure Pvt Ltd – a subsidiary of A2Z Maintenance and Engineering Services Ltd –  will set-up the largest integrated project in Asia for Municipal Solid Waste management for Kanpur city. Earlier in June 2008, Kanpur Municipal Corporation had given mandate to A2Z for processing and disposal of solid waste. Now this mandate has been extended for collection and transport also.

The company announced in a joint press conference organised by the company and the Kanpur Municipal Corporation that it was setting up the first of its kind in India, an integrated solid waste to power project at Kanpur.

The energy to be consumed by the plant will be obtained from RDF – Refused Derived Fuel. It is expected that the power plant will be operative by March 2011 and it will have a capacity to produce 15 Mega Watt of Energy. The company has plans to sell this electricity to the state, as well as, on commercial basis. The company assures that the electricity produced will be completely local and the technology to be used for RDF is organic in nature. RDF is the best substitute for coal and it produces less pollution than the coal.

From the 1st August, in one zone (12-14 ward) of city of Kanpur, door-to-door garbage collection will be started. By 15th of august this system will be implemented in the entire city. A2Z Infrastructure Private Limited will collect fees from the houses and shops and exchange it with City Corporation towards expenses for vehicles and other things.

With the start of this project, Garbage Management bill amount will be halved for the City Corporation. A2Z Project Head K.S.V. Nayar told that in due course, it is will be attempted to gradually make it zero.

Under JNNURM, at Panaki BhauSingh he told the newspaper correspondents that, in this plot of 46 acres of the Waste Management construction site, not a single drop of water will be wasted. Rain water will also be recycled and used to make manure. Survey will be carried out for door-to-door waste collection. Vehicles are being bought.

Under the new system, 1500 tons of garbage generated by the city will be segregated into different categories. Out of this, 40% will be used for fuel and electricity, 15% for manure, 5% for plastic manufacture and five to 10 percent will be used for bricks and tiles making. Remaining wastage mixed with earth will be buried in the ground.
