Power from garbage as the government uses 50 megawatts to power grid
Using the garbage of Dhaka city, the government for the first time is going to generate 50 megawatts of electricity to add to the national grid.
KM Mozammel Hoq, additional secretary of the local government division of LGRD and Cooperatives ministry, said they had sought opinions of different ministries concerned in this regard and soon after the initiative gets the go-ahead they would opt for the final agreement with the selected company.
Italian company Management Environment Finance SEL has already been selected as the lowest bidder to install the power plant. The LGRD ministry is the implementing authority of the project.
Four agreements would soon be signed with the company, said an official of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC).
With this the garbage problem of the capital will be solved to a great extent while the residue could be used as organic fertiliser.
