BMC’s proposal to set up waste treatment plants in the city gets over

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporations ( BMC) tender to manage and treat waste has received an over whelming response from international agencies.

22 foreign firms have responded to an expression of interest (EoI) issued by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s solid waste management (SWM) department for developing waste-to-energy and waste-processing technologies from waste.

The EoI has received 31 responses, 19 of which are joint ventures and consortia proposals and 12 are single firm proposals. Companies from Israel, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, the US, China, South Korea, Japan and the UAE participated in the EoI.

The proposed waste processing plants will be set up at Mumbai’s various transfer stations. The city generates nearly 6,500 metric tonnes of municipal solid waste and 2,000-2,500 metric tonnes of construction waste (debris and silt) daily. A provision of Rs 100.8 crores has been made in the civic budget for this project this year; additionally some components will be funded under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission ( JNNURM).
