Fairway Waste Management (Pvt) Ltd selects DP CleanTech for first Waste to Energy project in Sri Lanka

Effective 18th October 2017, DP CleanTech Ltd has signed a contract to supply a landmark waste to Energy project developed by Fairway Waste Management (Pvt) Ltd, a Public Private Partnership with the Sri Lankan Government. The 12MWe Karadiyana Waste Processing Project in Colombo District, Western Province is an integrated processing facility and is the first such project in Sri Lanka.

DP CleanTech is supplying and commissioning its well-proven waste combustion boiler and grate solution; as well as the plant automation and flue gas cleaning systems. DP’s high-performing solution will deliver superior plant efficiency and stability, and it is expected that in total the project will supply 79,000,000 kWh of electricity to the grid per annum. DP is supplying its proprietary plant automation system to ensure that the plant is optimised 24/7; and is also providing the flue gas cleaning and emissions control system to manage emissions to EU2010 standards.

This pioneering project deploys both combustion and biological process technologies to treat organic and inorganic MSW; thereby ensuring that the whole waste stream is being utilised in the recovery of energy and nutrients. It will be the first waste to energy facility in Sri Lanka to meet all international environmental and sustainability standards. In processing up to 500 MT (metric tons)/day of fresh municipal solid waste (MSW), the facility will reduce landfill waste from the catchment area by up to 90% and will immediately improve the environment for local communities as well as providing electricity for up to 37,500 homes.
