BAJ Gunung Agung Factory tapioca starch wastewater biogas extraction and utilization project, Lampung Province, Republic of Indonesia
Gunung Agung plant operates a tapioca factory with a production capacity 200 tonnes per day in Lampung, Indonesia. The starch factory produced a high organic content wastewater, which emits methane when treated in the anaerobic open lagoons prior to discharge waterways.
Under the project activity, an anaerobic digester treats wastewater which enable the capture of the generated methane. The captured methane then is combusted in a gas engine to produce electricity for on-site consumption. The project is located in Lampung, Indonesia.
