The Sindh government recently decided to convert waste into energy. The decision was made in the Provincial Coordination & Implementation Committee (PCIC) meeting and led by CM Sindh, Syed Murad Ali Shah.
CM was informed that only 6 out of 15 Garbage Transfer Stations (GTS) were operational. To utilize the nonoperational stations, it was decided that 6 more GTS would be reconstructed.
It was also informed that soon the garbage dumping ground soon would be filled and then the conversion of waste to power could be initiated. The power generated would not only produce energy but would also save land space.
The CM also proposed the purchasing of electric buses for the Green Line project and let it be operated by private parties.
A detailed plan was discussed where roles were allocated and deadlines for each task settled.
The plan also included the repairing for 106 damaged roads.
