Landhi Fertilizer and Biogas Company - LFBC works in Landhi, Pakistan using Buffalo manure to produce biogas for CNG or green electricity, compost and organic liquid fertilizer (OLF). Though small scale initially, it will be expanded to a very large scale with the potential for huge environmental, social and economic benefits.

LFBC will be a significant producer of organic compost & fertilizers.
A large manure based biogas plant will generate biogas for CNG, but that could alternatively generate 24MWe electricity.
The project will prevent over 1 million tons of CO2e emissions reaching the atmosphere and has the potential to earn CERs (Certified Emissions Reductions) under the Clean Development Mechanism of the United Nations’ Frame Work on Climate Change Committee.
Over 40,000 tons of Carbon dioxide will be sequestered that can liquified to provide dry ice to refrigerate agricultural produce for local or export consumption, or could be used along with compost for large scale mushroom production. After mushroom production the compost would besold as an enhanced compost product.
The project operations will also remove a major pollution problem emanating from the 8,000 tons of manure produced daily.
It will improve the health of the people and animals in the area and prevent marine and groundwater pollution by the manure.
Over 800 jobs will be generated in this area of high unemployment.
