NTPC has announced that its Karsada plant located at Varanasi, has been able to accomplish full load generation, and is running optimally at 214.3 kW. Set up with an installed capacity of 200 kW, the thermal Gasification based pilot scale 24 Tons per Day Waste to Energy plant has achieved full generation capacity.
Complementing environment conservation with technological innovation, the municipal solid waste supplied by the Varanasi Municipal Corporation is converted to electric power, thus ensuring scientific disposal of waste through a sustainable and environmentally friendly process.
NTPC has already signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Purvanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Limited (PuVVNL) of UP for evacuation of electric power generated at this waste-to-energy plant.
The project is also in line with the government’s Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), endorsing a healthy environment through proper waste utilisation. The compost created as a by-product is also sold as organic fertilizers to the farmers. The plant is being run by a MSME entity, in line with the government’s effort to promote small businesses, supplemented by the Make in India campaign.
