Canadian firm offers to produce cheap electricity

A private Canadian company has offered to establish plants in Peshawar and other big cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa under private-public partnership to produce electricity, fertilizer and other useful stuff from solid waste and garbage.

Faiza Butta, chief executive officer of OIKOS International, offered the assistance during a meeting with the Chief Minister Pervez Khattak here on Monday. The CM welcomed the offer and promised to provide all the required facilities in this regard.

“If OIKOS International sets up such processing plant then the provincial government besides ensuring supply of 1,200 tonnes of garbage and solid waste to the plant daily, will also provide guarantee for consumption of electricity and other items produced in the plants established by the company,” the CM assured Ms Butta.

Mr Khattak directed relevant officials to facilitate the company in this regard to expedite the process and to submit a report in this regard to him.
