Plans to Increase WTE Plants Gaining Traction

Iran's waste-to-energy plants can now generate 11 megawatts of electricity daily, the managing director of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization (aka Satba) announced.
"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.
A waste-to-energy plant is a waste management facility that combusts wastes to produce electricity. This is being increasingly considered a potential energy diversification strategy.
