Palm oil processing in Malaysia

Application

Biogas from palm oil

Customer

EnviroEquip

Requirement

A biogas monitoring system was required to monitor the raw biogas being produced, and to then monitor the biogas after it has been processed in a desulphurisation unit. The site uses 2 x GA3000s for this purpose.

Operation

The site was originally set up as a CDM project but the focus has moved to energy generation, worth 40c per KWh across 2 x 1MW engines. Palm mills use steam (fuelled by diesel engine) to separate the palm oil and produce large amounts of effluent.
