"Five WTE plants located in the cities of Tehran, Shiraz and Mashhad are currently active, and plans are underway to increase the share of such facilities, following the Energy Ministry's bid to substitute the fossil-fueled power generation with cleaner, environmentally-friendly methods," Mohammad Sadeqzadeh was also quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry's news portal on Saturday.
