Tender on waste-to-energy project to be announced in June/July 2017

The Yangon City Development Committee will invite tenders for the new waste-to-energy project in June and July, said a spokesperson of the YCDC’s Pollution Control and Cleansing Department.

The new scheme targets to produce electricity from garbage in the two biggest waste dumping sites in Hlinethaya and Dagon Myothit (North) townships, according to the pollution control department. Private companies have been invited to take part in the tender process.

The first-ever waste-to-energy plant near Hlawga National Park in Shwepyitha Township started operation since last month, supplying electricity to the national grid for local consumption.

The main purpose of establishing such a project is to reduce methane and carbon dioxide emissions to a certain degree as both gases badly damage the natural environment and are the root cause of climate change.

About 1,700 tonnes of waste are collected daily in Yangon. The YCDC collects garbage from every township and disposes them to designated dumping sites in Shwepyitha, Hlawga in Mingaladon, Dagon Seikkan and Dala townships every day.
