GWE reduces emissions at cassava plant

Clean water and green energy solutions provider Global Water Engineering's (GWE) Asia-Pacific cassava plant project has achieved international recognition.

The project uses a technology that helps minimise pollution, save power and enhance profitability.

In order to reduce pollution levels at its plant by more than 95%, GWE partnered with Chokyuenyong Industrial of Thailand. The company also aided GWE in extracting gas from its wastewater to power its boilers and generate electricity for its own use and to sell back to the provincial grid.

'Thailand, as the world's largest exporter of starch, is well placed to show leadership in how to achieve such progress in an environmentally friendly manner,' comments GWE's CEO Jean Pierre Ombregt. 'Our client... has achieved results that serve as an international model of how to get the process right.'

GWE has completed more than 300 water and wastewater projects in more than 60 countries including Asia, Africa, the Americas, Australia, China and Europe. It has also built and commissioned over 75 biogas utilisation systems.
