The 11 MW waste-to-energy plant being built by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) at Pirana will be operational by the end of this year and will turn 1,000 tonnes of waste to energy every day.

AMC commissioner Vijay Nehra tweeted that AMC has commenced removing the Pirana dump site in the city. He said the plant will use 1,000 tonnes per day and will produce 11MW of electricity. Nehra called on citizens to guarantee no more such dumps are created.

The AMC has arrived into power purchase agreements with two companies that will transform domestic garbage into energy. The AMC stated that Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC) has sanctioned a rate of Rs 7.03 per unit for one company and Rs 7.07 per unit for the other. At least three companies had sent petitions to GERC for approval of the Rs 7 per unit tariff.

The AMC had also set up the first sewage sludge hygienization plant in the country, which became operational last year. The plant, set up at Pirana, can convert 100 tonnes of dry sludge into fertilizer every day.
