The Gujarat Waste to Energy Policy 2016 estimates that the MSW of Gujarat State could support a Waste to Energy plant of approximately 100 MW. While regarded as an expensive source for generation, the policy recognizes the need to make MSW available to generators at designated locations free of cost, give lands for waste to energy projects at free cost to developers, and exempt waste to energy projects from taxes/duties/levies. Therefore, the Waste to Energy Policy – 2016 is intended to facilitate and promote the utilization of MSW for generation of electricity at an affordable cost in a sustainable manner.
