BBMP plans to convert waste to energy on a trial basis

Following an inordinate delay in developing waste to energy plants to address municipal waste issues of Bengaluru, the city corporation has now planned to install these plants on an experimental basis in two of its existing waste processing units.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has entered into an agreement with several waste to energy companies including Nexus Novus, Satarem India and Essel Infrastructure to build plants on the outskirts of the city.
