GE joint venture to build biogas plant in Malaysia

General Electric has partnered with Malaysian biotechnology company, Green and Smart, to develop a palm oil effluent (POME) biogas plant to provide a waste-to-power solution for the country's power providers.

The plant is expected to begin operations by December this year, and will use GNS' technology in anaerobic digesters and GE's Jenbacher gas engine technology to produce power for supply to the electricity grid, GE said in a press statement.

Malaysia is targeting 11% renewable energy (RE) usage by consumers and the industrial sector by 2020, with current use standing at around 1.5%.
