As populations grow, waste production grows. While more than one-third of waste in high-income countries is currently treated and reused, over 90% of waste in low-income countries is left untreated, ending up in landfills. The methane emitted from these landfills speeds up global warming at a rate 84 times more potent than CO2 (over 20 years) and 21 times more potent over 100 years, fast turning untreated waste into one of humankind’s greatest threats through soil, water and air pollution which all affect our environment and, in the end, our own health.
In Pakistan, approximately 50.000 tons-per-day (TPD) is of municipal-solid-waste (MSW) is generated. Most of it finds its way to the landfill but still huge portions end up in the environment directly. Unfortunately, landfills do not meet the standards for safe storage of this MSW. Methane from untreated waste is escaping uncontrollably causing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions but may also lead to uncontrolled fires on the landfill. These fires produce toxic fumes which are spreading over the city causing public health issues. Besides that, toxic leachate is floating into the soil contaminating groundwater directly and drinking water indirectly causing more public health issues.
Our company Khan Renewable Energy (Pvt.) Ltd. (KREL) is a Special Purpose Company (SPC) established to address these issues and replace landfills with advanced waste-to-energy (WtE). KREL consist of strong and knowledgeable partners in the field of waste management and WtE plants. KREL has the ambition to develop and construct a world-class “beyond best available technology” facility for waste-to-energy in following cities of Pakistan:
- KREL (WtE) facility for Karachi: With a capacity of processing 1500 tons of waste per day, producing around 50 MW of electricity which it will sell to the grid.
- KREL (WtE) facility for Lahore: with a capacity of processing 3,000 tons of waste per day, producing around 100 MW of electricity which it will sell to the grid.
- KREL (WtE) facility for Islamabad/Rawalpindi: With a capacity of processing 1500 tons of waste per day, producing around 50 MW of electricity which it will sell to the grid.
