Tex Cycle announces launch of biogas power plant


KUALA LUMPUR: Tex Cycle Technology (M) Bhd has announced that its 30%-owned GLT BP Power Sdn Bhd biogas power plant in Bukit Pasir, Johor, has commenced operations.

The facility converts palm oil mill effluent into biogas, significantly reducing environmental waste and providing a sustainable energy source.

According to Tex Cycle, the centralised nature of the plant allows for more efficient management and greater scalability, setting the stage for future expansions and innovations in renewable energy.

"The operational start of the GLT BP Power plant is a landmark achievement in our ongoing commitment to sustainable energy.

"This project enhances our portfolio in clean energy and underscores our dedication to innovative environmental solutions," said Tex Cycle group CEO Gary Dass Anthony Francis.

Tex Cycle had acquired the stake in the biogas power plant for RM4.5mil cash from Green Lagoon Technology Sdn Bhd in July 12, 2022.

GLT BP Power chief operating officer Raymond Cheah said the 3.5MW biogas plant has contributed over 1.6 million kilowatt-hours to the national grid since April.

"Our thanks go to partners like SD Guthrie and Hok Huat Group, whose support has been crucial in utilising palm oil mill effluent for clean energy production," he said.
