Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

  • To generate electricity, by using Biogas collected from POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent) through anaerobic digestion system and to supply such electricity to the GRID under FIT (Size of Generation: 2MW).
  • By installing 100kW Solar PV System for self consumption, maximizing the power supply to the grid.
  • The project aims to contribute to the reduction of GHG emission by reducing methane gas emission from POME and CO2 emissions from fossil fuel based grid connected power plants.
  • Furthermore, contributing to the improvement of areal environment by reducing pollution caused by rancid smell from POME.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

61,197 tCO2/year

  • Reference CO2 emissions: 66,226 tCO2/year
    Emissions from methane gas emitted from POME: 56,562tCO2/year Emissions from grid electricity displaced by biogas power generation: 9,664 tCO2/year
  • Project CO2 emissions: 5,029 tCO2/year
    Methane missions from POME treatment lagoons without biogas recovery system:
