One of the components of LWMC’s waste disposal is generation of energy from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) by reducing volume of waste up to 80%. ECOAIR, a US based Waste to Energy (WtE) firm was hired as official consultant of LWMC on WtE project. ECOAIR had conducted a feasibility study on WtE project and depending upon the characterization study of MSW of Lahore City, it was recommended that Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion (CFBC) technology is most suitable technology for WtE. LWMC has conducted waste characterization study of MSW from 2011 to 2014.
For establishment of a WTE project, Punjab Power Development Board (PPDB) issued a Letter of Interest (LOI) to the following Chinese company as Independent Power Producer (IPP) for establishment of approximately 40 MW WtE project;
M/s China ENFI Engineering corporation (ENFI) JV with M/s MCC Tongsin Resources Limited (MCCT)
M/s ENFI/ MCCT have registered their company in Pakistan with the name of SPV Lahore Xingzhong Renewable Energy Co. Ltd.
M/s ENFI/ MCCT Consortium has selected Lakhodair site for WtE project, and conducted feasibility study for installing Grate Incineration waste to Energy plant. It is planned to build a domestic WtE power plant with 2000 t/d waste processing capacity, equipped 3 sets of 670 t/d grate waste incineration furnaces and 2 sets of rated 20 MW condensing turbo generator sets. Average Waste Calorific Value (CV) assessed is 6220 kJ/ kg.
LWMC has assured to supply 2000 tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) on daily basis for 40 MW WtE project and has further assured 3000 Tons/Day waste supply to PPDB for next WtE Projects for Investors as IPP in Lahore, as many investors have shown their interest for investment in WtE Project.
