Singapore wants to aid Dhaka for waste-to-electricity production

Singapore has shown its interest to aid Bangladesh in producing electricity from waste.

The Ambassador of Singapore to Bangladesh Chan Heng Wing on Monday paid a visit to the secretariat office of State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid and expressed his government’s interest on the issue.

The Singaporean Ambassador informed Nasrul that about 3% of total electricity in Singapore comes from waste energy.

Aside from electricity production, the rest of the waste is being used to produce ash brick. These ash bricks are light weight, more heat resistant and free of fabrication.

Singapore also produces one sort of steam from waste which is being used as petro-chemical, said Chan.

Nasrul welcomed Singaporean ambassador`s intent of laying their hand to Bangladesh for waste-to-electricity production.

He said that Bangladesh is very keen to produce electricity from waste and it wants to use the knowledge and experience of Singapore in producing so.

As of now, an attempt has been taken by the Bangladesh government to establish a waste-to-electricity plant in Keraniganj, near to capital Dhaka.

During the meet, they both had a discussion on several bilateral interests including the establishment of LNG terminal.

Monwar Islam, Power Secretary, Nazim Uddin Chowdury, Energy and Mineral Resources acting Secretary and Darryl Lau, Counsel of Embassy of Singapore in Dhaka were present during the meeting.
