Kazakhstan - Construction of Waste-to-Energy Plants

About this project

Total annual capacity of 7 plants – up to 1.5 million tonnes of waste (indicative volumes). The Government is developing a framework to support waste-to-energy projects at the legislative level: WtE projects to be granted a competitive “green tariff” with 15-year PPAs to be officially revealed in an auction process. Each city’s administration to be obliged to support continuous supply of MSW to the plants. There is also an opportunity to sign an investment contract with the Government to secure tax and custom incentives.
