Installation of Low Green House Gases (GHG) emitting rolling stock cars in metro system (Project 1351) - New Delhi Municipal Council
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

The purpose of the project is to install low GHG emitting rolling stocks having regenerative braking system in Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). The only metro in the country i.e. Kolkata metro uses the conventional rheostatic braking technology, with regenerative braking technology fitted rolling stocks. The regenerated electrical energy is used by other rolling stocks on the line operating in powering mode. The regenerated electrical energy reduces the consumption of equivalent grid electrical energy required by the powering trains. There by conserving electrical energy and subsequently reducing the emission of 41,160 metric tonnes CO2 equivalent per annum and over the 10 years of period, it is estimated that total reduction would be 411600 tonnes of CO2e.

Expansion of Nature and Waste Bhalaswa Composting Plant at Delhi - New Delhi Municipal Council
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: In operation

The proposed Project activity will modernize and expand the operations of existing MSW composting plant owned and operated by Nature and Waste Management (P) Limited at Bhalaswa on the outskirts of Delhi adjacent to the large Bhalaswa landfill. Nature and Waste Management (P) Limited plans to expand its operations to 1,000 tons per day (tpd) with assistance of carbon finance. The modern aerobic windrow composting process produces a saleable compost product from a waste material that would otherwise have been placed in a landfill, generating large quantities of methane and other noxious gases, as well as leachate that seeps into and pollutes ground and surface waters at the landfill site. When in full production, some 365,000 tons of waste will be treated annually in the plant. It is estimated that for the first 10 years of operation of the expanded plant the average annual reduction in methane emissions will be equivalent to 54,173 tons CO2e per year and over the 10 years of time period total reduction would be 541,728 tons CO2e.

Upgradation and expansion of A.P.M.C compost plant at Tikri, Delhi - New Delhi Municipal Council
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment

The objective of the project is construction and expansion of compost production facility for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) located at Tikri in Delhi. The project involves adopting improved and scientific method for aerobic decomposition of Bio-Degradable component of MSW at Tikri. The Project comprises measures to avoid production of methane from biomass and other organic matter which would otherwise have been left to decay in Solid Waste Disposal Site (SWDS) without methane recovery. Due to the project activity, decay is prevented through aerobic treatment by composting and proper soil application of the compost. The project will contribute to mitigation of Greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions (35,329 metric tonnes CO2 equivalent per annum) through aerobic decomposition of the organic waste. Over the 7 years of period, it is estimated that total reduction would be 247308 tonnes of CO2e.

Integrated Municipal Waste Processing Complex at Ghazipur, Delhi - New Delhi Municipal Council
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

East Delhi Waste Procession Company Private Limited (EDWPC) is working in close co-ordination with Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) for developing a waste processing facility at the Ghazipur site to be developed on a build, operate and transfer basis to enable augmentation of the waste disposal capabilities of MCD. The integrated municipal waste-processing complex is proposed to include a MSW processing plant at Ghazipur to produce Refuse Derives Fuel (RDF) along with a power plant of 10 MW capacities where the RDF derived from the waste will be used as fuel to produce renewable electricity. The plant shall be capable of processing 1300 TPD of MSW. The project also addresses acute energy crisis faced by northern India by producing 10 MW of clean electricity that will be supplied to the local region. The components of the project are further listed below.
Thus the project would achieve significant reduction in GHG emissions (111,949 metric tonnes CO2 equivalent per annum) due to the following two components.
1. Avoidance of methane emission from dumping solid waste in the landfill sites.
2. Replacement of energy from carbon intensive NEWNE regional grid of India by supply of renewable electricity.
Over the 10 years of period, it is estimated that total reduction would be 1119493 tonnes of CO2e.

Upgradation, Operation and Maintenance of 200 TPD Composting facility at Okhla, Delhi - New Delhi Municipal Council
  • Start year:
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: In operation

The objective of Okhla MSW Composting Project at Delhi is to avoid methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in a landfill site through controlled aerobic decomposition in a windrow composting process. The aerated composting process will avoid methane emissions and will also result in compost as a product that can be utilized as organic fertilizer for agricultural purposes. The Okhla Project will treat biodegradable waste predominantly from vegetable market(s) of Delhi and on average it will divert approximately 73,000 tons of MSW per year (200 TPD) that otherwise would be disposed in nearby landfill site if the project was not constructed. Project would achieve reduction of 33,461 metric tonnes CO2 equivalent per annum and 234231 tonnes of CO2e over the seven years of time period.
