Anaerobic Digestion tank supplier, Kirk Environmental, has completed a 1.2 MW turnkey infrastructure project in for the San Miguel Corporation - South East Asia?s largest beverage, food and packaging company - in Vietnam.
Working in partnership with the Malaysian based subsidiary company Biodome Asia and Filipino Client Sure Inc, the San Miguel Corporation Plant will be producing biogas in a matter of weeks, and be self sufficient in power.
The recently completed facility utilises San Miguel's waste, combined with slurry from 15,000 sow hogs located on the Binh Duong farm to produce biogas which is captured in top mounted Biodome gas holders located on two of the four glass coated steel tanks constructed at the site.
The collected gas is then converted into electricity which will be used to power the whole facility.
The waste water which is produced on site will also be treated to wash and clean the facility and livestock on a daily basis and then further recycled back into the digesters.
Kirk Environmental says that this solution enables San Miguel to utilise the waste produced on site as a renewable energy source, which has previously incurred costs for disposal as well as limit the bad smell issue into the nearby environment.
Kirk Environmental and Biodome Asia are also nearing completion of the San Miguel Sumilao Farm Project in Bukidnon, Philippines as well as developing projects around the world.
