Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by replacing the existing fossil fuel boiler with an alternative heat generation process where biogas generated from wastewater discharged from the fruit processing factory of Dole Thailand in Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province is mixed and burned with coconut husk and other biomass in a newly introduced boiler.
Furthermore, the project avoids methane emission by introducing a new biogas generator to treat wastewater discharged from the factory into the effluent reservoirs at the factory site.
