OGDCL’s conference Clean Fuels – Bio Fuels 2020

A special conference on clean energy generation by the title of Clean Fuels – Bio Fuels 2020 was organised by the Petroleum and Natural Resources Division at OGDCL auditorium. The event was attended by experts from leading energy departments and academia.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Petroleum Nadeem Babar while addressing the ceremony said that the government had removed bureaucratic hurdles to facilitate private sector in the energy sector. He stressed to replace previous trends of producing expensive energy with cheaper energy to overcome the circular debt.

Almost 41 percent of electricity produced in June 2018 in Pakistan was produced from imported oil which is not good for energy security of the country. Developed countries are producing cheaper electricity through biomass and waste. Nadeem Babar stressed the need for taking practical measures to produce energy through alternative resources including biomass. Bio Fuels have the potential to become a central source of fuel in the country within the next 10 years as Pakistan is an agricultural country and can easily produce the raw material required for generation of electricity through bio fuels.
