Khan Renewable Energy(Pvt.)Ltd.
3,000tpd High Efficiency Waste to Energy (WtE) facility for Lahore, Pakistan.
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 (WtE) in Lahore, with a capacity of processing 3,000 tons of waste per day, producing around 85 MW of electricity which it will sell to the grid.
The existing dumpsite Lakhodair is approaching full capacity in the near future. The population of the Lahore metropolitan area produce an increasing amount of waste each year, while alternatives for landfilling are not in place or not sustainable. By turning waste into energy using the High Efficiency (HE) waste-to-energy technology from our technology partner HARVEST (Known as Awect), we will divert >85% of waste away from the landfill while producing baseload power using indigenous waste from Lahore as feedstock. The electricity produced from this indigenous feedstock can replace imported diesel-powered power production with a clean and sustainable renewable alternative. At the same time, we will be avoiding the emission of CO2 and other harmful Green House Gasses (GHG) emitted from landfills or by open burning of waste. No more land will be needed to build new landfills and leaching waste cannot pollute the soil and water anymore, thereby reducing the impact of waste on the human and natural environment.
The (HE) waste-to-energy technology was developed and validated in Amsterdam with the Amsterdam municipality, the Dutch government and is internationally seen as the most efficient waste incineration technology operational today. In developing this Project, we will bring the experience gained from operating integrated waste management from the Netherlands to Pakistan. We will generate a lot of local direct and indirect jobs, transfer technical and operation knowledge to Pakistan and while solving an environmental issue at the same time.
In addition, we believe that with the introduction of the High Efficiency (WtE) plant in Lahore, we can be a catalyst for a more circular economy in Pakistan modeled after the eco-park established in Amsterdam, the Netherlands where our partner HARVEST (Known as Awect) has its reference plant and waste management operations.
We believe the introduction of this landmark Project for Lahore will be beneficial for the people of Lahore on multiple fronts. Therefore, we seek your support in establishing this 3,000tpd High Efficiency (WtE) plant for Lahore which will deliver an environmentally clean and economically sustainable long-term solution to treat end-of-life waste in Lahore.
