India’s waste-to-energy paradigm

India's Waste-to-Energy Paradigm: A policy, environmental and social perspective is an earnest effort into objective, scientific, and environmentally conscious analysis of waste-to-energy technology and its current applications in India. This report begins by detailing the existing scenario across 12 states and analysing 20 waste-to-energy plants to identify trends in investment, administrative and governmental leeways, and efficiency of the underlying technology in the Indian context. The report then examines the existing governmental policies that support or otherwise influence the WTE landscape in India. A deeper dive into three specific scenarios of major WTE plants highlights the corporate-government nexus laying the foundation for the present and impending WTE failure. Finally, the report presents a commentary of the plastic waste management framework in the country.
