    1. 1. Needed: A National Waste Mission! CII Symposium on SWM, Hyderabad, Dec 6, 2011 Narasimhan Santhanam, EAI
    2. 2. Waste to Energy – EAI Perspectives • W2E Domains EAI Has Worked in – Solid Waste to Energy – Human Waste to Energy – Sewage & Fecal – Biomass Waste to Energy • Comparison of Solid W2E with Other Alternative Energy Sources (solar, wind, biomass, small hydro) – Capex & Opex… – Stakeholders & Dependencies – Govt / Municipalities / Logistics / Society / PCB… – Technology – gasification, pyrolysis, composting, biomethanation, incineration… – Society & Environment – activists, civil society, households… – Knowledge Gaps – Feasibility, technology, logistics, contract structures, buinsess models… • Takeaways for Solid Waste to Energy – Most projects have been non-starters – Different reasons for failures – tech, environment/society, govt. dependencies, economics – Profitability of projects still in doubt – incentive structure & policies, costs – Too many uncertainties and too few benchmarks – What’s Needed is a National Waste Mission, a la National Solar Mission
    3. 3. National Waste (to energy) Mission • Align waste to energy to Indian society’s – not Western society’s – characteristics • Create a framework after intense consultation with all stakeholders; let there be a national framework that serves as reference • Establish clear benchmarks for technologies, processes and costs • Establish feed in tariff mechanisms, tipping fees etc., tailored to different waste streams & technologies • Adopt grassroots innovations (by NGOs, for instance) already in place for waste management and waste to energy • Make waste to energy R&D a priority in premier institutes (IITs and IISc)
    4. 4. About EAI Aspires to be a catalyst for the Indian renewable energy and cleantech industry • Dedicated focus on renewable energy and cleantech for India – solar, wind, biomass, biofuels, waste to energy & energy efficiency • Diversification, feasibility studies, market entry strategy, business intelligence • Founded by professionals from IITs and IIMs • Based out of Chennai • More from www.eai.in – see also our club, forum, mailing list…
    5. 5. Waste is just value we are too stupid not to use – Albert EinsteinNational Waste Mission = National Value Mission Narasimhan Santhanam, EAI narsi@eai.in , www.eai.in
