Howrah has walked a step ahead towards green energy after a German team of experts visited the town for a garbage-to-electricity project on Monday. The district, which produces around 500 tonne of garbage every day, has potential to produce around 1,000 MW of electricity from the waste.
The project, part of a long-term project on renewable energy, is likely to meet the power demand of the district to a large extent. According to sources, when implemented in full, it will have the potential to meet some of the power demands in nearby towns and cities too.
Huge power source
A team of experts from Germany visited Howrah garbage dumping yard at Belgachhia on Monday. The team, led by HA Detample, made the first visit to the dumping yard site. Detample, who is an expert at the German waste-to-energy firm Intec Micro Powder AG, felt that the project has the potential to produce 2 MW power per day from the waste at the site. The company, headquartered in Berlin, is one of the pioneers in synthesis gas systems used in drawing energy from waste.
According to Sailesh Rai, vice-chairman of Howrah Municipal Trade Development Zone, generators are driven by gas produced from waste. This process allows feeding electricity to public grids. While the project will require an investment of around Rs 2,500 crore, almost 90% of that will be borne by the German company.
A cleaner and greener future
“The state government will have an investment of 10% and the Howrah Municipal Corporation (HMC) will provide land for the project,” said Shyamal Mitra, MMiC of HMC. The municipality will allocate the entire area of 33 bighas for the dumping yard, sources said.
