tshwane thumb100 Engineering News reports that the City of Tshwane has received a proposal from the Kratos Consortium that seeks to drive industrialisation in the metro by means of three different, yet interrelated, projects.

Considered in August by the city’s executive committee, the proposal speaks to the development of an iron-ore processing plant, agricultural production facilities for biomethane and hydrogen, as well as the use of both gas and exhaust emissions to drive turbines to produce clean energy. According to the proposal, this will reduce the carbon footprint of Tshwane and enable the city to earn carbon credits, which will be an additional revenue stream for the municipality. The proposal commits to creating 36,000 sustainable jobs over the course of five years. The public have until 7 October to submit their comments on the proposal.
