Fawad Chaudhry—the federal minister for Science and Technology has announced that his ministry has formed a geyser-sized biogas plant which would transform organic waste for producing gas.
The plant is for domestic use. It could make use of the kitchen waste and convert it into fuel which would be enough for the family of 5 to 6 people. The cost of the plant is Rs.35,000 which is highly affordable for something that is offering a sustainable option for use.
The minister also said that the day he took over the ministry he asked everyone to work on the projects that could improve the lives of the local citizens.
Shortage of drinkable water is one big issue of the country and the target is to make sure that the safe drinking water is made available for all the citizens.
He informed that they would be spending 70percent of the health budget on the water-related diseases.
He talked about the electric rickshaws and motorbikes project and said that it is the idea of the PM Khan. He added that they are currently working on producing batteries locally.
Fawad Chaudhry has been a busy man ever since he took over the ministry. He also announced about sending the first astronaut of Pakistan to space in 2022.
The biogas would be available soon for local use. It would be easy to buy and install. Instead of throwing away the undesirable waste one would be able to use it which would help in saving the money.
