SITE TOUR | 30 APRIL 2015

SITE VISIT TO FGV BESOUT POME BIOGAS PROJECT

Felda Palm Industries - Besout Palm Oil Mill is one of the 71 mills owned by Felda Global Ventures Holdings equipped with biogas capture
facility complete with gas engine & gas pretreatment. Biogas generated from palm oil mill discharge is captured, pretreated with bioscrubbing
system to reduce hydrogen sulphite content before fed into gas engine. The electric power produced is then channelled to mill as internal
power consumption, displacing diesel fuel previously used. This project is an example of clean, renewable energy generated from palm oil mill
discharge, resulting in full utilization of biogas, fossil fuel displacement translated to savings in diesel cost and lowering the carbon
emission/footprint.
