The project treats waste water from the palm oil milling process (POME - palm oil mill effluent) using an above-ground anaerobic digestion system, incorporating BIODOME Double Membrane Roofs unto modular bolted tanks. It also utilises an external mixing system, which allows for easy access of maintenance without downtime on plant operation. The biogas produced is current flared to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE) & in near future, to be connected to boilers to replace conventional fuel.
