Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) generation is rapidly increasing in India with growing urbanization and economic development. Improper management of MSW poses an enormous risk to human health and environment. Waste is dumped untreated within or outside the city, posing a major health risks to the city. This calls for an urgent action to address this problem with a more scientific approach and use of Waste to Energy (WTE) technology for a healthy and sustainable development of the society at large.WTE is a process where waste is used to generate power thus acting as a single tool that could tackle waste management and also act as an additional way to meet energy needs.
In this context, SNP Infra Research is coming up with a business research report on “Waste to Energy: A multibillion dollar Opportunity for India” that would assess the economic and operational viability of WTE projects in India. The report will also come up with state attractiveness for WTE projects in India and rank several ULBs on critical parameters. This will help project promoters and technology providers to assess each and every ULBs for possible business opportunities in the Waste to Energy segment.
The report will also come out with a sensitivity analysis on account of the tipping fee and tariff discovered for a project to be viable in the long run to help ULBs take an informed decision and make budget provisions accordingly.
Major concerned to be addressed through the report:-
Which cities qualify the most for development of WTE projects along with their technical and economic viability assessment?
What is the possibility of WTE projects to be grid fed and what are the constraints?
What are the different options for sale of power from WTE projects and what are the best options?
What tariff best suits for WTE projects vis-à-vis different technology?
What models suits best for WTE projects in India?
What are the pros and cons of developing a WTE projects through PPP model?
What are the experiences so far in developing WTE projects in India and what is the key learning from them?
What are the different challenges faced by WTE projects in India and how to overcome them?
How the problem of segregation of waste can be addressed in Indian context given very low level of awareness among the population?
What are the different technologies available for WTE projects and their sustainability in Indian context?
What is the current market in terms of size, volume and revenues for established players in this segment and how the scenarios will look like in short, medium and long term?
Is it commercially viable to develop a WTE project in India and if yes, what are the successes factors that need to be considered?
