Waste To Energy Project At Karadiyana

The objective of this project is to utilize GreenTech’s Advanced Thermal Gasification System (ATGS) and Thermal Advanced Gasification Reactor (ATGR) which utilize plasma technology for generation of the necessary thermal energy to completely destroy municipal solid waste (old and fresh) that will be initially collected at Karadiyana municipal dumping site and then to be collected from nearby local authorities and thereafter to generate electrical power in an environmentally safe manner. The study comprises baseline survey on existing conditions of physical, ecological, economical and social conditions of proposed and existing project sites.

Mahagona Wewa Irrigation Project.

The Hurulu Ela, which is located about 2 km downstream of the proposed tank Intersects the proposed irrigable area under this project. At present this proposed irrigable area is being cultivated using water obtained by illicit tapping from the Hurulu Ela. This has resulted in water shortages for farmers in the downstream of the Hurulu Wewa Irrigation Scheme. Hence the main objectives of this project are as follows:

• Providing water for cultivation of 615 acres of crown and private lands resulting in increased cropping intensity and production • Providing an assured supply of water for the farmers in the area for agricultural activities Up to 500 families will benefit from the project
• Improved water management and drainage facilities
• Preventing/minimizing illicit tapping from the Hurulu Ela
• Inducing farmer organization development
• Improved access facility through construction of an access road to villagers and farmers for transporting agricultural products to markets
• Increased water availability for wildlife

The study comprises baseline survey on existing conditions of physical, ecological, economical and social conditions of proposed and existing project sites.
