QCOSTARICA – The Federation of Metropolitan Municipalities (Federación Metropolitana de Municipalidades (Femetrom) has renewed an agreement with the state power company, the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) to produce energy from solid waste and sell it for a period of 25 years.

This agreement was renewed despite the fact that there is still a moratorium in effect on power generation from waste, which it is estimated will be suspended in March, once the regulation governing this activity is ready.

As part of the agreement, a waste processing plant will be built in the west of the capital, which is estimated to start operations in the next three years.

Juan Antonio Vargas, executive director of the  Femetrom told that “… The signing of this agreement for the next 25 years broadens the scope of the first agreement signed for three years, which was renewed for the purpose of realizing the proposed processing plant to produce electricity from solid waste.”

Meanwhile, Claudio Dittel, corporate manager of ICE, added “… The ICE’s commitment is to buy the energy produced, but it is the municipalities who have the responsibility for specifying how to build the plant, the transfer of wastes; the ICE will eventually be able to help technically where needed for the project’s implementation. ”
