One of the components of LWMC’s waste disposal strategy is generation of energy from municipal waste. Ecoair, a US based WtE firm has been hired as official consultant of LWMC on WtE project. Ecoair has conducted a pre-feasibility study on WtE project and depending upon the characterization of Lahore's municipal waste, it has recommended Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion (CFBC) technology. After a feasibility study, a WtE plant having capacity of processing 1035 tons of waste daily will be installed. Plant will generate 550 megawatt electricity daily and installation and functioning of plant will take at least 3 years. LWMC is also considering other technologies suggested by several international WtE firms. Other technology to be considered is Pyrolysis.
