The China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) will implement the project on a 25-year deal
Amin Bazar, Dhaka’s biggest dumping ground, is set to become a waste-to-energy plant, a waste management facility that combusts wastes to produce electricity. This type of power plant is sometimes called a trash-to-energy, municipal waste incineration, energy recovery, or resource recovery plant. The China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) will implement the project on a 25-year deal. During the 25 years, the government will pay some Tk 15,325.43 crore to CMEC. Some 42.5 megawatts will be generated every day using about 3,000 tonnes of waste. The power will be sold to the government at Tk 18.295 per kilowatt. The photos were taken on Thursday.
