KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah said on Tuesday that he had keen interest in introducing latest but low cost and effective USA technologies for bullet/ bomb proofing of government vehicles/ buildings, and refining/ recycling the waste water for socio-economic benefits and constituted separate penal of officers/ experts to examine and evaluate the proposed technologies and impact of investment in them.
This he said while talking to Chief Executive of SN International Powers LLC (USA) Sohail Khan who called on him along with Micheal Kronick Director of his company and Mahsheed Mohiuddin country representative to discuss about this investment.
The chief minister said that both technologies were important for the Sindh province, especially when the government was fighting terrorism in Karachi and facing problem of brackish water in interior Sindh. He said the municipal and industrial waste has created health hazards for the common man.
He said that Sindh had already planned to refine and reuse the LBOD brackish water for the Thar Coal Power Project by treating it through ROs but if this technology was found as economical it would not only be applied for this purpose but also for agricultural purpose.
“By treating the municipal and industrial waste water, we can not only improve our environmental condition but also control over the waterborne diseases to reduce the health bill of Government and citizen as well,” he said.
He directed the officers to KMC, LBOD and Planning & Development Department to examine the proposed waste water refining technology by establishing a pilot project at Karachi and report for future roadmap.
Similarly, while elaborating the importance of bullet proofing of government vehicles and buildings at low cost through PVC rigid composite and lamination with specialized polestar multiple layers, he asked the IG Sindh Police and other experts officers to examine the technology and submit their report with recommendations.
The chief minister said that Sindh Government was already working on this project for the protection of Police Officers. He added that such type of technology would also encourage the Police Officers and improve their performance, while in case of success it would become popular in the private sector as well.
