Camco SEA set to develop biogas project in Malaysia

Camco International, a developer of clean energy products designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, has announced that Camco Southeast Asia (SEA) is to develop a 2MW biogas project in Malaysia.

The project, based at a palm oil mill in Palong in Pahang state, will use anaerobic digestion to recover biogas containing methane from palm oil mill effluent.

The project will reportedly be among the largest of its type to date to generate electricity for supply to the Malaysian national grid.

Camco SEA acquired the rights to develop the project through the acquisition of Biopower Climate Care Holding, a fully owned subsidiary of Rhodia Energy. Camco SEA will continue the construction of the project, with completion of the plant expected in early 2013.
