recycling plant

Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Secretary Sardar Ajaz Ahmad Khan Jaffar Monday vowed to establish the sacred papers recycling plant in Islamabad in a year as the project was in the doldrums since 2016. The recycling plant is planned to be established in Haji Camp Islamabad for Rs 331 million and is planned to completed within this year.

Recycling would include the processes of pulping, deinking, and the production of new paper. The ink would be removed through a flotation process in which air is blown into the solution. The ink would adhere to air bubbles and rise to the surface, where it would be separated.

He stated that the sacred papers recycling plant would be built on Shariah principles and run scientifically. A piece of 10 canal land in Haji Camp Islamabad had already been allocated for the construction of the recycling plant, which would cost Rs331 million, he added.

The Pakistan Public Works Department (PWD), according to Secretary Sardar Ajaz, will build it within a year. He believed that the recycling plant would assist in disposing of the sacred papers of the Holy Quran in appropriate and respectful manners, thereby reducing blasphemous incidents in society to some extent.
