Sihanoukville, Cambodia – Feasibility Assessment Completed

posted in: Company News | 0

GEI Mekong has completed a detailed feasibility study and investment plan for a waste-to-energy facility in Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

Sihanoukville has seen increased investment and development growth over the past 10 years, creating an increase in the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) being produced, collected and dumped into its Prey Nop landfill site, approximately 20km’s from the city.

GEI Mekong has completed a detailed feasibility study and will look to build a 6-line Pyrolysis synfuel (diesel) facility that will process approximately 480 tonnes of MSW and plastics per day. The facility will produce approximately 67,000 litres of EN590 grade synthetic diesel, 15 tonnes of Biochar and 528 metric tonnes of carbon credits per day.

“We have identified a number of provinces in Cambodia that have substantial and ever-increasing waste management issues, particularly with landfill sites filling to capacity very quickly. The Cambodia Government has done a fantastic job in developing Sihanoukville with increased tourism and commercial investment, but continuing to dump rubbish and plastics into a landfill site is not viable.” said Steve Morrish, GEI Mekong’s Chairman.

GEI Mekong is now waiting for the Sihanoukville Provincial Government to take action and issue GEI Mekong with a waste agreement before GEI Mekong can take the project to its investment partners.
