LANGKAWI: The country’s first waste incineration plant which runs on power generated from solid waste, will commence operations here in August.
Among the notable features of this plant, which is part of the green campaign initiative, is its ability to generate its own electricity by burning waste.
The plant in Kampung Belanga Pecah, Jalan Air Hangat is now on a trial run to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Department of Environment (DOE), Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung said said after visiting the plant here yesterday.
The RM68mil plant can process 100 tons per-day of waste to gene-rate one megawatt of electricity.

Chor said the plant is also capable of segregating solid waste and recycling.
