90 MW power can be generated from city’s waste daily: Nasrul

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid on Wednesday said over 90 MW electricity can be generated daily from the waste piled up every day in city corporation areas.

“We have to manage waste properly to make the city environment-friendly and through using waste the country can get more than 90 MW electricity daily,” he said while witnessing a memorandum of understanding signing ceremony as the chief guest at Byduit Bhaban here.

Nasrul said about 9,000 tonnes of waste is being produced in Dhaka city every day. It is possible to generate one-megawatt electricity from 80-100 tonnes of waste and accordingly 90 MW electricity can be generated from the waste of city corporation areas, he added.

Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) and Narayanganj City Corporation (NCC) signed the MoU to produce electricity from waste.

Secretary of BPDB Mina Masud-us-Zaman and Chief Executive Officer of NCC ASM Ahtasamul Haque signed the MoU on behalf of their respective side. 

Among others, Narayanganj City Corporation Mayor Dr Selina Hayat Ivy, Power Secretary Dr Ahmed Kaikaus and BPDB Chairman Engineer Khaled Mahmood spoke on the occasion.
