East Kalimantan, Indonesia

  • 4 MW el
  • Palm oil organic waste

Project Details

Location: East Kalimantan, Indonesia

Year of Construction: 2010

Input Materials: POME, EFB and decanter sludge
Output power capacity: 4 MW el

The wastewater generated from palm oil milling activities or POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent) is well known as a good source for biogas production.

Left untreated in the open, POME will decompose organically and releases methane and CO2 into the atmosphere. Therefore many conventional biogas technologies compete to tap into those abundant resources. As good as it sounds, this also leads to heavy ignorance of many other organic wastes that comes from the Palm Oil plantations.

Using WABIO Technology, the biogas plant in East Kalimantan produces green energy not only from POME, but also from ALL other organic waste coming from the plantation. These includes fibers, Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) and also the decanter sludge, all of which contain fibres that usually take time to decompose. With our technology there is no organic waste left unwanted. This is how, WABIO plants generate about 4 times more biogas volume compared to the conventional technology using palm oil mill organic waste.
