SECOND METHANE CAPTURE FACILITY COMMISSIONED

On 26 October 2012, the group’s second methane capture facility was commissioned. This will materially reduce REA’s carbon footprint by capturing the methane released when palm oil mill effluent (POME) is digested and utilising the captured methane to produce electricity. In addition to reducing the amount of this potent Greenhouse Gas that enters the atmosphere, using the methane to produce electricity will significantly reduce the amount of diesel used by the group in generating electricity, thus further reducing the group’s carbon footprint. The group now has two methane capture facilities in operation, both of which have been verified as small scale Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects.
