Prior to SC meeting, EEP organized site visits to two funded projects in Thailand.

The project EEPM-C8-011 (KIT Bio-CNG) located in Rayong province, about 150 km southwest of Bangkok. The project is modifying an existing biogas plant at a starch factory using the biogas, after purification and compression, as ‘Bio-CNG’ in the transport sector.

Subsequently, the project site of EEPM-C8-005 ‘RPG Biomass and Biogas Impact Project’ was visited in Nakhorn Ratchasima province in the North-East of Thailand. This project recently completed the construction of a new type biogas system and sells some parts of the biogas to the adjacent starch factory for drying purposes. The excess biogas will be purified, compressed and sold as Bio-CNG to the transport sector.

During the site visit, the biogas plant was inaugurated, with a ribbon cut ceremony, and a tree planting symbolic action.

Both projects are highlighting new opportunities to use biogas produced from starch factory wastewater for other purposes than generation of electricity.
