CCE launches eco-friendly waste-to-energy power plant

Chonburi Clean Energy (CCE) has inaugurated its advanced, environmentally friendly waste-to-energy power plant at WHA Chonburi Industrial Estate 1.

 

CCE is an international consortium of three companies with their respective areas of expertise providing new alternatives for future energy utilising industrial waste.

 

Three of them are WHA Utilities and Power (WHAUP), a subsidiary of WHA Group, Glow Energy, a subsidiary of Global Power Synergy, and Suez, a world leader in smart and sustainable resource management. 

 

CCE’s total project investment is approximately Bt1.8 billion. It can convert more than 400 tonnes of industrial waste into electricity per day, or approximately 100,000 tonnes per year at its rate of operation. Out of its total capacity of 8.63MW, 6.9MW will be sold to the Provincial Electricity Authority under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

 

CCE has also signed a waste supply agreement with Waste Management Siam (WMS), a leading player in Thailand’s waste collection, treatment and disposal. 

 

Under this agreement, WMS will annually supply about 100,000 tonnes of industrial waste collected from WHA industrial estates in Chonburi and nearby areas. Using safe and environmentally sustainable waste incineration technology and high-standard air emission control systems, the facility can convert waste generated from industrial manufacturing activities into superheated steam that will in turn propel a turbine to generate electricity.

400 tonnes of waste per day. 1 lorry, say, is 40 tonnes waste. 10 lorries per day. 3650 lorries per year. Blimey, but then 100,000 tonnes at 400 tonnes per day is 250 days, so that's now...10 lorries per day for 250 days of the year. God help the other traffic around that area.

No! No! This should not happen. What about the CO2 emissions from the burning of waste? It's not mentioned in the article. This is disgraceful. The damage done by the increased CO2 emissions will far outweigh the benefits of a litter-less environment. 

 

Just joking. It's a very sensible idea.  ????

LOL! Your comment makes you the fool. Thailand is a 3rd world country and looks like it will remain so for ever. In fact since 2006 it has degressed and not progressed. You are either Thai and believe Thailand is the center of the universe or a western who just arrived in Thailand and still haven't a clue what is going on. I'm not a gambling man but I would put a very large sum of money on this will not be running in 2 years in fact 12 months would be even money just like the other waste centres around Thailand. Black water anyone.
