Faridabad to have first waste-to-methanol plant by end-2023

November 24, 2022 |

In India, Hindustan Times reported that the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) has identified 8 acres of land in Faridabad’s Sihi to set up a waste-to-methanol plant, where 500 tons of waste will be converted into methanol on a daily basis, said officials, adding that

According to the report, the corporation is likely to sign an agreement this week with waste collection concessionaire Ecogreen so that waste is not sent to landfill and will be directly sent to the plant instead.

MCG joint commissioner Naresh Kumar said the project was finalized this month and Ecogreen will start construction by the first week of December. “Once the setup is done, the segregated wet and dry waste from Gurugram and Faridabad will be sent to this plant for the further processing. The plant is likely to generate methanol within 12 months and this will also help to clear the legacy waste. The plant will not only generate revenue for the state but also help in generating employments locally,” he said.
