Reports of New Mechanisms Feasibility Studies: FY2011

Title of Feasibility Study (FS)New Mechanism Feasibility Study for Energy Generation by Waste Management Activities, through Anaerobic Digestion as Model Technology, in Malaysia
FYFY 2011
Main Implementing EntityIchikawa Kankyo Engineering Co., Ltd.
FS PartnersTurbine Technique(counterpart of the study)
UEM(Owner of the expressway)
UEM Environment(Environment company)
Kualiti Alam (Environment company, support of the study)
Bioenergy Corporation ( Anaerobic digestion)
CUES (Local coordinator)
Location of Project ActivityMalaysia
Category of Project ActivityWaste Management
Summary of FS ReportPDF (890KB)
Description of Project/ ActivityCollect food wastes from waste dischargers located in and along the highway of Malaysia peninsula, and produce electricity through “Anaerobic Digestion (AD)” facility, and sell to the national grid as green electricity.
Reference Scenario and Project/ Activity BoundaryCurrent system (collection, transportation + final disposal) will be continued
Monitoring Methods and PlanBasically follow AMS-III.AO "Methane recovery through controlled anaerobic digestion" and AMS-I.D "Grid connected renewable electricity generation", but simplify the procedure.
GHG Emissions and Reductions1) GHG reduction from landfill site: 5,133tCO2e/y
2) GHG reduction from grid: 499tCO2e/y
= 5,632 tCO2e/year (average on first decade)
MRV System for GHG ReductionsThere are multiple combinations of waste source and, waste treatment sites where target waste has been currently landfilled, method to measure baseline simply is needed.
Analysis of Environmental, Socioeconomic and other Impacts (including Securement of Environmental Integrity)The project provides positive impact on: Reduction of waste flowing into landfill, Promoting recycling activities through promoting separation activities, Reduction of fossil fuel consumption by utilizing unused energy, Prevention of leachate from landfill site
Financial PlanningMalaysian government is expecting private investment for the public services. Although our Malaysian counterpart has possibility to invest, tipping fee will be half if the facility will be owned by government.
Introduction of Japanese TechnologyPossible. It is also necessary to establish a system of providing high value added technology and its service in order to introduce Japanese technology in the field of waste management
(i.e. Improvement of Local Environmental Problems)
(1) Saving landfill life: volume of food waste transported to landfill will be 1/5 without the project.

(2) Leachate quality improvement effect: Over 99% of COD will be treated through AD and waste water treatment procedure.
Contribution to Sustainable Development in Host CountryThe project contributes to the effective use of unused food waste, which can also substitute the consumption of fossil fuel of the national electricity grid, meets to Malaysian renewable energy policy, produce employment and raise the awareness on environmental protection to the citizen through environmental education program.
