Video Conference to Disseminate Study on “Possible Uses of Crop Residue for Energy Generation Instead of Open Burning” on Friday, 04th September 2020 from 10:00 AM – 01:00 PM PKT (Pakistan Standard Time).
In order to evaluate the potential of crop residue available in SAARC region, for conversion into useful energy and to assess technological options with valid cost-benefit analysis; SEC carried out a study on “Possible use of crop residue for energy generation instead of open burning” in 2019. To disseminate the findings of the study and to get feedback from the Member States for value addition, SEC is organizing a Video Conference.
This video conference will discuss the Overview of the agriculture sector, prevalent disposal methods and technologies to generate energy from crop residue, Energy generation potential for the Member States, barriers, and challenges for implementation and recommendations.
