Ahmedabad Goes Green With 300 TPD Waste-to-Steam Plant

Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation is taking a big step towards sustainable waste management with a new 300-ton-per-day waste-to-steam plant. This public-private partnership aims to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and minimize environmental impact, aligning with global efforts in waste-to-energy solutions.

Ahmedabad produces around 4000 metric tonnes of solid waste on a daily basis.


The plant, constructed by Steamhouse India Limited, will be built on a designated 5-acre plot at the Pirana waste site. It will utilize waste-to-steam technology that meets strict emission standards. This innovative approach creates a “circular economy” by converting waste into a usable fuel source called refuse derived fuel (RDF).

Beyond environmental benefits, the Ahmedabad project offers significant economic advantages. Compared to traditional waste-to-energy facilities, this method boasts a 70% reduction in capital expenditure. This financial viability, coupled with reduced reliance on foreign resources, presents a compelling model for other municipalities and industries seeking sustainable waste management solutions.
