PM opens Sri Lanka's First Waste-to-Energy Power Plant

Sri Lanka’s first Waste-to-Energy Plant was officially launched today in Kerawalapitiya by the Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The power plant is planned to generate 10 megawatts using 700 tons of garbage daily and will operate by collecting waste from the area.

Over 3, 500 metric tons of household waste is produced daily. In the absence of a waste-to-energy plant, municipal solid waste will collect in landfills, polluting both the ground water and the environment.

The waste-to-energy plant will incinerate this waste, supplied by the Colombo Municipal Council. 600 – 800 tons of waste will be processed every day and the power supplied to the national grid.
