Construction begins at one of Pakistan’s biggest biogas plants
Naqvi launched the construction work of the 6,000 cubic metre biogas plant at Gujjar Colony Rakh Chand Rai Lahore.
The plant will cost Rs350 million (€1.2 million), with Rs80 million (€273,000) expected to be generated annually, with the project therefore meeting its construction cost within a few years.
The income generated from the plant will be spent on the construction and progress of the same area.
Another biogas plant will be established in Gujjarpura, announced Naqvi. Around 24,000 livestock is available in the Gujjar Colony, and gas as well as natural fertiliser will be prepared from their manure.
‘The completion deadline of biogas plant is 30 April but we will complete this project before the deadline," said the chief minister.
