Even though the capital is readying itself for its third waste-to-energy plant in Narela-Bawana, environmentalists say these plants are not the way forward to dispose of garbage in the capital. Currently, Delhi has 3 waste-to-energy plants.

The Narela-Bawana plant, which is likely to be operational from June, has a capacity to process around 1,300 metric tonnes of waste per day to produce 24 megawatts of electricity.
