NEW DELHI: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has started trial runs for its biggest construction and demolition (C&D) waste plant in Burari with a capacity to process 2,000 tonnes of waste daily.

Officials said that the plant will become operational next month and cater to the requirements at the sites belonging to government agencies as well as the residents of the area. “The plant will cater to six zones, including Civil Lines, Paharganj, Karol Bagh. All government agencies can drop the waste for processing here after paying the processing fees. The private players can use the facility after paying the transport and processing charges from their houses,” the official said.

“In the case of the MCD, only transport charges will be imposed by the concessionaire operating the plant for collecting waste from our sites. Considering the land belongs to us and the project is implemented on PPP basis, no processing fees will be charged from us as per the contractual terms,” the official said.

This is the fourth C&D waste plant of the MCD. A plant at Shastri Park processes 1,000 tonnes per day. The one at Bakkarwala too processes 1,000 tonnes per day and the plant at Ranikhera 1,500 tonnes per day.

“With the full operation of four plants we will be able to process 5,500 tonnes waste per day, 1.5 lakh C&D waste per month and 18 lakh tonne per year, which is close to the (requirement of) waste generated in the city (20 lakh tonnes per day).,” the official said.

A site for the fifth plant was identified near the Okhla waste-to-energy plant with a possible capacity of 1,000 tonnes per day. “It will be established at a site vacated after the biomining of legacy waste at the Okhla landfill. The anticipatory approval for the project has been given by the mayor and we will soon float the request for proposal (RFP) for the project,” the official said.

Giving details of the plant at Burari after her visit, mayor Shelly Oberoi said that the plant, covering 7 acres, was equipped with machines of Irish technology for wet and dry integrated waste processing.

“Asia’s largest C&D waste plant has environment-friendly, advanced technologies of the world. It ensures reusing 90-95% of water and zero wastewater generation. Equipped with remote monitoring, control and optimisation capabilities through a centralised command and control centre, the plant is capable of effectively converting C&D waste into sand, while adhering to norms. The technology guarantees zero air pollution and maintains minimal noise levels, aligning with the highest environmental standards,” she said.

“Incorporating one of the world’s most advanced technologies, the plant produces various grades of output material with utmost precision. The material generated from the C&D waste includes stone aggregate, coarse sand and sprained soil. It is utilised in making tiles, CC Blocks and interlocking paver blocks,” the official said.
