Feasibility Analysis of Waste-to-Energy as a Key Component of Integrated Solid Waste Management in Mumbai, India by Perinaz Bhada (July, 2007)

The objective of this report is to  examine the solid  waste management process in Mumbai, from generation to final disposal, and determine whether waste-to-energy is a suitable method for waste disposal for the city. Various criteria are covered, such as the appropriateness of Mumbai’s MSW for incineration, the environmental effects of WTE versus open dumping, the savings in availability and cost of land, and the amount of energy production from a waste-to-energy facility.
