Karachi Electric signs accord with dairy farmers on biogas project

Karachi: Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Karachi Dairy Farmer Association that marks completion of the onsite testing phase of Bio Waste to Energy Project a venture that aims to produce electricity from cattle manure from the Landhi farms. Under the memorandum, the Dairy Farmers Association would supply from 3,500 to 4,000 tons of cattle waste on daily basis to KESC to be used as feedstock to produce biogas required for electricity generation.

This new landmark step will facilitate waste collection studies, project implementation and rollout of many socioeconomic initiatives in the Landhi area. In addition to producing green energy using renewable fuel gas, the project is a gateway for several other initiatives such as road and power infrastructure improvement, development of schools, clinics and water purification plants for farmers and enhancement of laboratory facilities for testing of cattle feed and milk.
