1.Very soon, the waste generated at New Delhi railway station will not only be recycled but also be used to produce electricity to light up the station.

2.The Delhi Division of Northern Railway is going to set up a waste-to-energy plant, that will turn the garbage and other waste collected at the station into electricity and manure.

3.Waste generated at the New Delhi railway station will be segregated into bio-degradable and recyclable waste. Biodegradable waste will be converted into electrical energy and manure. Electrical energy will be utilised by the Railways, most likely at the New Delhi railway station itself.

4.Approximately 2,000 units of electricity produced (three phase, 415V) in the waste-to-energy plant per day will be purchased by the Railways from the contractor at the rate at which electricity is supplied to local municipal domestic users. Additionally, the Railway may also procure manure from the contractor.
