Lucknow inks MoU for bio-CNG plant in PPP mode

The Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) has signed a memorandum of understanding with a private company to set up a bio-CNG plant in the Uttar Pradesh capital that will facilitate better waste management in the city.

Addressing media persons on Sunday, Municipal Commissioner Indrajeet Singh said, “Lucknow generates about 2,000 metric tonnes of waste every day. Out of this, about 50% is wet waste which can be turned into manure. It can also be used for making CNG. To ensure better disposal of waste, the municipal corporation will set up the plant under PPP mode. An MoU will be signed for this on Monday.”

He added that the plant will have the capacity to process 300 metric tonnes. This bio-CNG will be cheaper by about Rs 5 per kg from the market price. “Apart from this, proposals are being sought under the PPP mode for setting up a 10 MW capacity plant to generate electricity from waste.”

The Commissioner added, “LMC is going to run an awareness campaign with residents. The drive would be aimed at the segregation of wet waste and other solid waste. This would ensure that only the best quality of waste reaches the bio-CNG plant. Besides, LMC will contact bulk waste producers to set up their own waste disposal plants as per the guidelines of the Swachh Bharat Mission.”
