KMC, UK firm sign pact to produce energy from garbage

The pact signed between the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) and a British firm to execute the project of disposing of 10,000 tonnes of the city’s garbage daily and utilising it to produce electricity will prove to be a revolutionary step.

This was stated by Administrator KMC, Muhammad Hussain Syed during a meeting with Head of the British Company, Richard Cook in his office here on Saturday, said a press release.

The KMC chief said that this project would help in maintaining cleanliness in the city besides enhancing the power supply to the city. He praised the cleanliness system, transfer of garbage to land-fill sites and its very scientific handling in London and Glasgow.

He proposed that the service of the international companies providing civic services should be sought to upgrade the municipal system in Karachi under the public-private partnership.

The administrator said that Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan was also taking keen interest in this project and wanted to see its earliest execution in view of its importance.
