Inaugurating an energy plant established at the Punjab Bio Energy Institute, Postgraduate Research Station UAF, in collaboration with China, he said the UAF had installed the 100-kilowatt (KW) biomass gasification power plant meant for the promotion of alternative energy to overcome power shortfall touching 5,000 megawatts.
From the NPBS Office: One of the business areas in Pakistan that we have been mentioning for several years now! We would really encourage Nordic companies to look at the opportunities in biomass power production in Pakistan!
Pakistan is producing huge quantities of biomass and crop residue every year that could be converted into electricity to help lessen the energy shortfall in the country, said University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan.
“The plant converts agricultural waste into power via the gasification process. Although it is a 100KW plant, we can provide power to at least 50 households from it,” he said.
