The project activity involves installation of an advanced anaerobic wastewater treatment and biogas extraction system at a tapioca starch production plant owned by PT. Budi Starch & Sweetener Tbk. The collected biogas is utilized for electricity generation.
By capturing and utilizing biogas, the project activity reduces the methane emissions that previously was emitted from the anaerobic open lagoons. The electricity generated displaces grid electricity for tapioca processing. Any excess biogas is combusted by an enclosed flare system, ensuring no direct release of methane generated by the project activity to the atmosphere. The project is located in Lampung, Indonesia.
