CCE is an international consortium of three companies with their respective areas of expertise providing new alternatives for future energy utilising industrial waste.
Three of them are WHA Utilities and Power (WHAUP), a subsidiary of WHA Group, Glow Energy, a subsidiary of Global Power Synergy, and Suez, a world leader in smart and sustainable resource management.
CCE’s total project investment is approximately Bt1.8 billion. It can convert more than 400 tonnes of industrial waste into electricity per day, or approximately 100,000 tonnes per year at its rate of operation. Out of its total capacity of 8.63MW, 6.9MW will be sold to the Provincial Electricity Authority under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
CCE has also signed a waste supply agreement with Waste Management Siam (WMS), a leading player in Thailand’s waste collection, treatment and disposal.
Under this agreement, WMS will annually supply about 100,000 tonnes of industrial waste collected from WHA industrial estates in Chonburi and nearby areas. Using safe and environmentally sustainable waste incineration technology and high-standard air emission control systems, the facility can convert waste generated from industrial manufacturing activities into superheated steam that will in turn propel a turbine to generate electricity.
