Karachi: The Karachi Electric Supply Company has established partnerships with local and international companies to ensure the successful launch of the first large scale Bio Gas Project in the country. The project is located in the Landhi area of the city.

Participants of an energy awareness conference at NED University of Engineering & Technology said they were informed that the KESC's Bio Gas Project will utilise gas recovered from cow manure in Landhi and organic waste from the Korangi and Landhi industrial areas. The project will generate an estimated 25 Megawatts of renewable energy and is expected to be functional in the next 18 to 20 months.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between KESC and Highmark Technology to develop Bio Gas projects in Pakistan. Highmark is a Canadian company that utilises residue from cow and food processing waste and turns it into valuable renewable energy and other products. It is currently operating the largest feedlot manure energy plant in the world.

KESC and General Electric (GE) also signed an MoU to develop the Landhi Bio Gas Project. GE Energy is one of the leading suppliers of power generation and energy delivery technologies in all areas of the industry.

KESC General Manager Strategy Omer Ghaznavi informed participants of the energy conference that in future, KESC intends to work with GE Energy to develop more renewable energy projects in Pakistan.

Webmaster's note: Karachi is a city of 17.5 million people. KESC is the monopoly power supply and distribution provider in Karachi. Highmark's technology is not limited to cow manure or food processing residue. It economically creates bioGas/heat/electricity from many forms of organic waste, including human sewage/feces/night soil.
