UK to introduce waste-to-electricity system in Sri Lanka
The United Kingdom has agreed to introduce a system to Sri Lanka to generate electricity using discarded materials as a solution for the possible power crisis that could take place in the future.
This was discussed at a meeting held between the Minister of Power, Energy and Business Development Ravi Karunanayake and the British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka James Dauris recently.
Issuing a press release, the Ministry of Power, Energy and Business Development said that the government has decided to heed low-cost, eco-friendly power generation to fulfil the increasing electricity demands and this new implementation can be regarded as a significant milestone in this regard.
Stating that hydropower generation is the main and the most cost-effective way of generating power in Sri Lanka, Minister Karunanayake has said all the potential water resources in the island are currently being used for hydropower generation.
He has further said that the government is currently looking for alternative low-cost energy sources.
Generating electricity using discarded materials can resolve the country’s power crisis as well as the issues in waste management, Minister Karunanayake has told the High Commissioner.
The High Commissioner has commended Sri Lanka for holding an optimal status in electricity supplying among the countries in the Asian region.
The cost-effective sources of energy generation used by Sri Lanka at present minimize the environmental damage and provide benefits to the customers as well, the High Commissioner added.

This project should include our outdated Leaders including Pam**** S, RW, MR, GR, Sampanthna, Sumaturan, BR, Gammanpila, Weeerawnsa and all other dinasaurs who are ruining the precious motheraland.
They should all be dumped in the landfill and the bulldozer should be run 10 times over them.
At least, then they can genenerate some gasses to develop energy.
