Sindh to generate energy from waste

The government of Sindh has decided to control the overwhelming menace of waste by initiating a ‘waste to electricity’ project. Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah gave the go ahead of the project while presiding over the second Provincial Coordination & Implementation Committee (PCIC) meeting.
The CM was informed that at the current rate, landfill sites would be filled very soon; therefore, a power plant might be installed on waste being collected from the city. The power generation from the waste would save land as well as cater for the ever-growing energy needs of the metropolitan.
It was decided in the meeting to work out a plan to generate power from the waste being collected from the city on priority basis. Interested firms in the project may be invited for submission of their proposals.
During the meeting it was pointed out that of 15 Garbage Transfer Stations (GTS) only six were operational at the moment which was significantly hindering the process therefore of garbage collection. Revival or reconstruction of other GTS was also agreed upon during the meeting.
