WASTE TO ENERGY PROJECT, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA

As a country in transition, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BIH) faces, in the post-war period, many social, economic, and other problems, among which the issue of environmental protection stands out as one of the most crucial. In the pre-war period, the basic natural resources – water, air and soil – of BIH, as the centre of heavy industry and as the republic providing raw materials and energy that served as the basis for the economic development of former Yugoslavia, were subject to serious pollution. Large areas, above all those in urban areas, were exposed to various forms of pollution, due to expansion of construction and building, manufacturing industry and power industry (mines and large power facilities).

Waste, a major environmental issue in BIH, causes problems, due mainly to inadequate management, lack of infrastructure, and social attitudes towards rubbish. The current lack of an adequate waste disposal system in BIH has led to the illegal dumping of considerable quantities of rubbish at roadsides, in rivers in abandoned mines, and similar places, posing threats to public health and the environment. BIH does not, at present, operate any garbage incineration facilities. While recyclables separated from the mixed municipal waste amount to less than 5 % of the total municipal waste mass (estimate), at least 95 % of the collected mixed municipal waste is disposed of mostly on non-sanitary disposal sites. As Bosnia is applying for European Union membership, waste management and treatment is a principal criterion for their EU membership. To address the EU membership criterion, in June 2016 four municipalities in Goražde collectively issued a tender, inviting waste management companies worldwide to bid and provide a solution.

Opportunity Overview

WASTE TO ENERGY PROJECT, BENGALURU (BANGALORE), INDIA

At present India generates about 960 million tonnes of solid waste annually, as by-products during industrial, mining, municipal, agricultural, and other processes. Of this, about 350 million tonnes are organic waste from agricultural sources; about 290 million tonnes are inorganic waste of industrial and mining sectors and about 4.5 million tonnes are hazardous in nature and these figures are rising daily.

Urban areas in India alone generate more than 100,000 tonnes per day (tpd) of solid waste per day, higher than the total daily waste generation of many countries. Large metropolises, such as Mumbai and Delhi generate around 9,000 tpd and 8,300 tpd respectively.

The population of Karnataka according to the 2011 census is 61,095,297 is rapidly rising, making it the ninth most populated state. Karnataka has a landmass of over 190,000 sq. kilometres, which makes it the eighth largest state in the country. The city of Bengaluru (Bangalore) alone generates around 5,000 tpd of Municipal Solid Waste. There is an immediate and intensive need for effective Waste Management Solutions in India, and in Bengaluru in particular.

Many international and local companies in India have either failed or created more problems with their technology (burning, burying) and others are quite ineffective in just carrying out segregation, incineration, and composting only.

Sri Lanka energy sector

Sri Lanka energy sector

Outlook and Available Investment Opportunities

Sri Lanka is on the path towards becoming an internationally competitive middle-income country. This power and energy sector development plan is aligned to the country’s development drive, and has been prepared to provide affordable, high quality and reliable energy for all citizens, rich or poor, equally by conserving country’s precious natural environment, giving priority to the indigenous energy sources, and minimizing regional disparities in energy service delivery. The power and energy sector vision is to capture the full potential of all renewable and other indigenous resources in order for Sri Lanka to become a nation self-sufficient in energy.

The total energy requirement of the country was around 11,125 ktoe in 2013, and the primary energy supply mainly consisted of 4,814 ktoe of biomass, 4,582 ktoe of fossil fuels, and 1,442 ktoe of hydro. Accordingly, 56% of total energy consumption is from indigenous (biomass + hydro), and Sri Lanka has to import fossil fuels to meet the balance. This requires importing 02 MMT of crude oil, 04 MMT of refined petroleum products and 2.25 MMT of coal to the country annually, costing approximately USD 5 billion in foreign exchange. The average annual total bill of imported fossil fuel is therefore 25% of our import expenditure, and nearly 50% of total export income. Therefore, the power and energy sector has a huge bearing on the country’s balance of trade and exchange rates.

Sri Lanka has already achieved a grid connectivity of 98%, which is commendable by South Asian standards. Current total installed power generation capacity of the country is approximately 4,050 MW, consisting of 900 MW of coal power, 1,335 MW of oil burning thermal power, 1,375 MW of hydro power and 442 MW of non conventional renewable energy sources such as wind, mini hydro, biomass and solar power plants.

The annual total electricity demand is about 10,500 GWh, comprising of 38% from domestic consumers, 39% from industries and 20% from commercial enterprises, with the balance coming from other sectors such as religious organizations and street lighting. The overall annual demand for electricity is expected to increase by around 4-6%, a number constrained by high prices.

The transport sector is also an important pillar of the economy. A sustainable transportation system contributes towards better socio-economic development by increasing rural connectivity and sustaining an efficient and clean urban environment. As shown by studies conducted in the recent past, the transport sector is the highest contributor to GHG emissions with a share of about 48% of all CO2 emitted from fossil fuel combustion. In 2013, out of a 5.2 million total vehicle fleet, the number of two wheeled and three wheeled vehicles was 3.6 million, which is expected to increase with higher economic development, posing both financial and environmental challenges in the future.

In this context, it is clear that a strategic balance between the national energy demand and supply has to be maintained with a long term perspective, in order to support a steady economic growth in Sri Lanka. With one of Sri Lanka’s primary resources being her human capital, this sector development plan for a knowledge based economy has primarily developed to meet energy demand through renewable and other indigenous energy resources, and their potentials towards a “green” economy, energy conservation measures for its sustainability, measures for energy security, financially and economically justifiable pricing policies for electricity and petroleum products, research and development initiatives, and importantly management and good governance practices for the sector.

  • Sri Lanka’s domestic demand for electricity will increase from 4,043MW today to 6,900MW by 2025
  • Transmission Network – Need to enhance from 601 km of 220 kV to 1,300 km by 2025; From 2,310 km of 130 kV to 3,000 km by 2025
  • Future project value of the sector next 5 years – US$ 4Bn

These initiatives will ensure that consumers and businesses are not unduly vulnerable to external market factors, and that the economy can benefit from a secure and affordable energy supply. Sri Lanka will be elevated to a regional hub by increasing its refinery capacity and utilizing the gas and condensate discoveries in the Mannar basin to create and meet domestic demand as well as to supply international oil and gas markets. Development of a natural gas processing plant in Norochcholai and an oil storage and trading centre using the Trincomalee tank farm are part of this strategy. Large scale deployment of renewable energy will further increase the resilience of Sri Lanka’s energy
supply, with a large scale wind farm in Mannar and a wide spread network of fuel wood exchanges being some planned Green initiatives.

The power and energy sector of Sri Lanka is looking forward to an energy self-sufficient nation by 2030.

 

Energy Sector Targets…

1 To make Sri Lanka an energy self-sufficient nation by 2030
2 Increase the share of electricity generation from renewable energy sources from 50% in 2014 to 60% by 2020 and finally to meet the total demand from renewable and other indigenous energy resources by 2030.
3 Increase the electricity generation capacity of the system from 4,050 MW to 6,400 MW by 2030.
4 Generate a minimum 1,000 MW of electricity using indigenous gas resources discovered in the Mannar basin by 2020.
5 Increase generation capacity of low cost thermal power plants fired by natural gas and biomass to 2,000 MW to reduce the generation costs and to diversify the generation mix by 2020
