000 tonnes resulting • Palm Oil mill effluent: approximately 68.000 tons of palm fruit per year • Fruit grinding capacity: 30 tons per hour. • Raw oil production: about 16.Ecofys Technical description of PALCASA • The facility process an average of 100.000 m³ per year .

.Ecofys Initial wastewater treatment The current system of residual water processing at PALCASA consists of 8 open lagoons with a biogas emission of around 3 million m³ per year. Additionally the system creates a number of environmental problems.

Ecofys Instrumentacion PLC Desarrollo por BIOTEC de un Programa “IP-BIO” para el monitoreo de los sistemas MDL de captación y aprovechamiento del biogas de las lagunas de tratamiento. la entrega rutinaria de reportes de diferentes niveles. incluyendo un reporte semestral a Naciones Unidas (UNFCCC) y un sistema de alarmas en caso de fallas . El Programa IP-BIO permite el monitoreo a distancia por telemetría.

Ecofys EECOPALSA Biogas Plant •5 lagoons and two anaerobic lagoons covered with a floating plastic membranes to capture the biogas •Biogas will be used to generate electricity and sale it to the national grid .
