The planned complex in the area of Soto would use plasma to generate waste into electricity, according to a CNE resolution.

The company submitted the concession request in February and now has 12 months to carry out studies in the lead-up to a definitive concession.

CNE reported the executive submitted a bill to congress to modify renewable energy incentives law 57-07.

The change would allow the use of cogeneration or hybrid technology such as plasma or pyrolysis in biomass or solid waste-fired power production.
