Then, the project's construction period will take about 24-26 months with the commercial operation date (COD) scheduled in December 2019. Total investment on the project is estimated to be around 1.5 billion baht (or approximately 43 million US dollars).

Mr. Steve Clark, CEO of SUEZ Asia, stated that SUEZ, a world leading company in environmental management (waste and water), has been successfully developing and operating close to 60 waste-to-energy references worldwide. We will bring ourinternational experience and expertise on waste management and development in waste treatment infrastructure to ensure that the project will be aligned with world-class standards and will create a proper norm for industrial waste management in Thailand. Our goal is to assist local government in its ambition to create a circular economy and protect the environment by converting waste into green energy.
