“Along with powering street lights, this energy plant will now charge electric vehicles too,” he added.

Ankit Zaveri, CEO, AeroCare Clean Energy said, “At present, there are 3-4 electric cars that come to the station. We are working towards public awareness campaign and also looking into expanding and opening more organic waste-powered EV charging stations in the city.”

The plant was developed on an abandoned plot at Keshvrao Khadye road near Haji Ali circle. Spread over 2,000 square feet, it can generate 80 to 110 cubic metres of gas per day and 220 units of electricity per metric tonne of waste.
