Minister inaugurates Pakistan’s “largest biogas plant”
Naqvi laid the foundation stone for this biogas plant last October, and directed the authorities to complete the project ahead of schedule.
The facility is located in Gujjar Colony, Lahore, and has the potential to produce 6,000 cubic metres of gas per day with 1,600 kilogrammes of dung.
It is expected that the plant will generate 16,000 kilogrammes of organic fertiliser each day, which can be used by farmers to enhance per acre yield of various crops.
The estimated cost of the biogas plant is Rs350 million (€1.1 million), with a projected annual revenue of Rs80 million (€266.1k).
Naqvi also planted a sapling at the biogas plant site.
