PALM OIL WASTE TO ENERGY PLANT TO GENERATE 2.3 MW IN INDONESIA
Industrial wastewater company ADI Systems Asia Pacific has been commissioned by cleaning product company Wings Corp to design, construct and install a waste to energy plant at its palm oil mill in Jorong, South Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The plant will be built by PT Gawi Makmur Kalimantan to turn fermented Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) into a biogas for use in a gas engine. This will produce electrical power to be used by the mill, replacing diesel generators.
The anaerobic system facilitates efficient mixing between sludge and the feedstock, and separates the hydraulic and solids residence times to maximise biogas production and solids breakdown.
In addition to biogas, the reactor generates a liquid effluent and a higher solids waste sludge, which can be irrigated onto farm land as a nutrient supplement, or further treated with aerobic polishing to achieve higher quality final effluent parameters.
Biological commissioning is expected to begin in February 2016 with the plant producing sufficient biogas to supply 2.3 MW of electrical power by May 2016.
