BIOGAS (SimbionTeA)

Food waste (FW) disposal has been a persistent problem in the solid waste management of many countries. SIRIM’s solution is an anaerobic digestion (AD) system that will divert food waste (FW) from being disposed in landfills and instead produce two beneficial products namely biogas that can be used as fuel, and biofertiliser for gardens and landscapes. SIRIM’s technology known by its trade name SimbionTeA (SIRIM Biogas & Tenaga Alternatif) was first installed at Pusat Biomass Bersepadu, Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya. When operated at full capacity of 500kg FW/day, it will be able to generate about 5 kW electricity.
