Campus Cafeteria Food and Plant Waste Runs a Power Plant, Malaysia



The system is a first rate high technology biogas power generation package that is first in the world.  It is similar to a state-of-the-art biogas power plant with all the automation and instrumentation to make it safe and efficient.  To give you an idea what that is, click a short video link below.

An efficient and reliable biogas system must not be only tanks, pipes, and valves.  it must be controlled and biogas production analyzed.  Fuel mixed observed and studied to create the perfect system to give extra value for your money.

The manufacturer, a technology company in the field of renewable energy, and Usains Holding Sdn Bhd jointly Launched the System Operation of the Mini Biogas Power Plant Demonstrator – the smallest of its class but with a performance and power output that is close to what industry expects.

The Mini Biogas Power Plant supports USM’s GREEN CAMPUS Initiative. It will be fed with food waste from campus cafeterias and plant wastes. An estimated daily total of 400 kg of food waste as well as a vast amount of organic garden wastes every few weeks will be fed into the system and be turned into two by-products : biogas and electricity. The electricity produced will be channeled into the University’s Electric Grid.

The manufacturer is investing in this Mini Biogas Power Plant Demonstrator Project to promote the technology and to play its part in translating research knowledge from the field of renewable and sustainable technologies from one of Malaysia’s leading Universities into practical use.

The market segment addressed by the Mini Biogas System is principally as an alternative and eventually a solution to the expensive use of fossil fuel in remote locations and on islands due to high transport and storage costs.

35% of all households are not connected to the main grid. They use electricity derived from generator sets. The Mini Biogas Power Plant has been designed to be an alternative source of electricity and fuel. Each single Mini Biogas Power Plant will produce gas (methane) equivalent in electricity-generating capability to approximately 65,000 litres of petrol or diesel per year. Each plant is estimated to involve an investment of 0.8 million ringgits. A litre of fuel carried into the remote location (or island) would have escalated to 4.0 ringgit/litre. Recovery of the initial investment from cost saving will take only 3.1 years!

The Mini Biogas Power Plant is a compact power solution for the following sectors below:

– Segments now using expensive fuel to produce electric power and looking for green replacements;
– Rural development for communities of remote areas or islands;
– Hotels, Resorts, and Clubs who are now using generator sets for part of their electricity supply;
– Farms and plantations with agricultural wastes and a need for electricity, heat or cooling;
– Highway restaurants and rest areas where there are sufficient amount of organic wastes;
– Independent Power Producers (IPPs) which may wish to supplement their main technology with this decentralized renewable energy solution.


A D V E R T I S E M E N T :

Helping the Poor.

I am currently for hire to do a highly profitable triple bottom-line business to raise the lives of the rural poor. It is a grass-root technology driven business to usher decentralized progress. It will generate power, create jobs, develop local industry, mitigate climate change, and empower a local community- all at the same time.

Simply put, I am looking for a willing employer that I can give more business by helping others.
