Iranian state-owned power company Khuzestan Regional Electrical Company has unveiled plans to develop three waste-to-energy projects.

The waste-to-energy independent power projects (IPPs) will be built at sites in Khuzestan province, western Iran, and would receive 1,400 tonnes a day (t/d) of waste.

The following cities have been identified for the projects:

  • Ahwaz (site located 10km from city) – 700 t/d
  • Dezful (site located 17km from city) – 400 t/d
  • Abadan (site located 17km from city) – 300 t/d

Daily delivery of waste will be the responsibility of the associated municipalities, which will be required to guarantee supply. Municipalities will also be responsible for supplying land for the construction of the projects.

Khuzestan Regional Electrical Company will guarantee the purchase all of the power from the projects on behalf of Iran Power Generation, Transmission & Distribution Management Company (Tavanir). Khuzestan Regional Electrical Company will be responsible for doing studies of grid connection.

Khuzestan Regional Electrical Company has invited interest from private investors to deliver the waste-to-energy projects.
