ADI Systems has been selected by Siam Modified Starch (Thailand) for a SMS waste-to-energy project.

This project will provide biogas to generate heat for on-site utilization at an SMS production factory. The biogas will be generated from starch factory wastewater and root cake, and the resulting recovered energy will support the underlying goal of "zero discharge" of factory wastewater to the environment.

The project includes ADI Systems’ pre-hydrolysis upstream of the primary ADI-CGR® reactor. Membrane filtration of the biogas plant effluent by SMS will recover permeate water for on-site use.

Commissioning of the biogas plant is scheduled for Q3 of 2016.
