Project Brief –
Waste to Energy (WtE) is a process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste.
Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has identified site for the development of Municipal Solid Waste (Mixed) to Energy Facility WtE) in compliance with various provisions stipulated in the SWM Rules, 2016. Expected waste quantity of 750 tonnes per day (TPD) is envisioned at the project site for disposal of waste, & expected Generation of 13 MWh power for the city.
The proposed Waste To Energy Plant, is located at Ramtekdi, Pune within the jurisdiction of Pune Municipal Corporation. The project is envisioned in two phases.
The project is based on Control Combustion technology (incineration) for processing of Mixed MSW. Mass-burn systems are the predominant form of the MSW incineration. Mass-burn systems generally consist of either two or three incineration units ranging in capacity from 500 to 1,000 tons per day; thus, minimally processed refuse.
The major components of a mass burn facility include:
- Refuse receiving, handling, Presorting and storage systems
- Combustion and steam generation system (a boiler)
- Flue gas cleaning system
- Power generation equipment (steam turbine and generator)
- Condenser cooling water system
- Residue hauling and storage system
The overall masterplan is designed keeping in mind the phase-wise development of the plant. The campus is developed on the lines of Sustainability. A green buffer is proposed along the periphery of the site that emphasizes the sustainability aspect of the project. Two separate entries, one each for Material & Office staff has been proposed. A complete loop for vehicle movement is proposed for an efficient movement within the campus. All major areas that would be handling the waste are maintained at negative pressure, as an odour control measure.
Advantages of WtE:
- Production & use of energy
- Reduction of waste going to landfill
- Stability in availability of energy & its price
- Avoid methane emissions from landfills
- Use of by-products as fertilizers, fly-ash bricks, Refuse-derived Fuel (RDF) etc
