Pakistan's Chief Minister, Mohsin Naqvi, marked a significant milestone on October 25th by laying the foundation stone for one of the country's largest biogas plants. The official inauguration launched the construction of a substantial 6,000 cubic metre biogas plant located at Gujjar Colony Rakh Chand Rai in Lahore.
This ambitious project, with an estimated cost of Rs350 million (€1.2 million), is expected to generate an annual income of around Rs80 million (€273,000). With this impressive revenue projection, the biogas plant is set to recoup its construction costs within a relatively short span of time. Furthermore, the generated income will be reinvested in the local area, contributing to its development and progress.
Chief Minister Naqvi also revealed plans for the establishment of another biogas plant in Gujjarpura. The Gujjar Colony, where the first plant is located, is home to approximately 24,000 livestock. The biogas plant will convert their manure into valuable resources, including gas and natural fertilizer.
Naqvi expressed his commitment to the project's timely completion, stating, “The completion deadline of the biogas plant is April 30, but we will complete this project before the deadline.”
