SET-listed TPI Polene Power (TPIPP) said it will join bidding to construct two waste-to-energy plants expected to break ground next month.

 

The plants, in Songkhla and Nakhon Ratchasima, will each cost Bt2 billion and have electricity generation capacity of 8 megawatts and 9.9MW respectively, said TPIPP vice-president Worawit Lerdbussarakam.

 

The projects come under the government's Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP) 2018 to buy 400MW per year.

 

"We are confident we will win the bidding because we have expertise in waste-to-energy plant construction," he said. The company plans to join bidding for other, similar projects.

 

TPIPP would propose its plan to build a 40MW waste-to-energy plant in Saraburi's Thap Kwang Subdistrict to the Interior Ministry, expecting to invest up to Bt3 billion, he said.

 

The company will sell the electricity to the government rather than local cement factories, as previously planned, after demand for cement was hit by the Covid-19 outbreak.

 

He added that TPIPP had cooperated with local authorities to build 9MW refuse-derived fuel power plants in Samut Sakhon, Chanthaburi, Ayutthaya, and Chonburi's Sriracha and Ban Bueng Districts.

 

The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) said it will give the go-ahead for the two waste-to-energy plants once it received approval from the Energy Ministry. So far, 21 proposals for the plants have been approved by the Interior Ministry and are awaiting clearance under the AEDP and Power Development Plan.

Wast to energy sounds good , but they have to take care that all toxic emissions will be filtered out and later destroyed in a sustainable way .

If not , the locals won't like it and cause problems  by filing lawsuits .
