IESS 2047 shows four levels for development of municipal waste to energy, over 2012-2047 for urban as well as rural areas of India. The MSW generation rates and change in its characteristics across the years are based on estimated growth rate of India’s urban and rural population and also comparing the same with that of other developing as well as developed countries.
Technologies considered for modelling the scenarios are:
- Biogas Generation through bio-methanation
- Power Generation through thermo-chemical conversion using especially designed combustion systems
- Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
