In an aim to boost WTE sector in India, Ministry of Environment and Forests has revised Solid Waste Management Rules which has introduced responsibility on generators to segregate waste into three categories: Wet, Dry and Hazardous Waste. The new Rules also assign responsibility on local bodies having 1 million or more population to set up waste processing facilities within two years. India, with its ambitious target of adding 175 GW of renewable energy to the grid by 2022 plans to add 10 GW of electricity generation capacity from bio-power.
Further, the Tariff Policy 2016 mandates power distributors to buy all the electricity generated from waste-to-energy plants in a state and the remunerative tariff set for it by the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has helped raise investor interest in this segment. The municipal corporations are expected to receive Rs.15,000 crore over the next three years under the Swachh Bharat Mission for cleanliness, waste-management and waste-to-energy projects. Also, the government is also setting up a $1.25 billion fund, backed by state-owned Power Finance Corp. Ltd and Rural Electrification Corp. Ltd along with some private institutions. These allocations, together with private partnerships, could result in an investment of about Rs.65,000 crore in these projects over the next three years.
