Abstract:
    Natural gas shortage is one of the biggest problem faced by Pakistan. Our vision is to generate domestically usable natural gas using anaerobic digestion process of industrial waste sludge.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Pakistan's natural gas consumption in general has grown 80 per cent over the last 15 years,In such situation most of the industries are throwing away a renewable resource of energy without realizing its worth i.e Waste water Sludge, an indirect hazard to environment too.its processing leads to n.gas
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Domestic energy crisis and environmental impacts of industrial waste being disposed of in nearby villages without being treated leads to many diseases.Our vision is to process industrial sludge into natural gas to facilitate 60% rural population in Pakistan for domestic use.
How will the solution works
    Every industry has a waste water treatment section that generates active sludge, an enriched source of hydrocarbons. This sludge is separated and processed under following steps to generate natural gas(Aeration, thermal hydrolysis, anaerobic digestion). Final product is 70% Methane and 30% carbon dioxide (composition may vary based on in-fluent sludge composition). generated gas will be distributed to nearby villages for domestic use. e.g Nestle kabeerwala Plant generates 60000 KG sludge/day.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Most of the industries employ combustion or disposal technique for waste sludge redemption. Our innovative addition is to treat waste and turn it into something useful . One time investment leading to life time benefits.
