Dairy industry is one of the important industry in Thailand and in any country, since people eat dairy product everyday. This industry also produces significant amount of wastewater which requires treatment. Futhermore, the treatment process can also yield a substaintial amount of biogas for power generation of heating.
UASB is the process where the organic matters in the waste are degraded by methanogens to produce biogas. The specialty of this process is that the microbes aggregate and form granules. This process was invented in the 1980s by Prof. Lettinga. Papop has contributed to the early development of this process by commercialize this process 25 years ago in Thailand.

The locations of biomass and biogas community power plant projects, the discount FiTf rate and the final FiT rate for the winners are shown. The interesting data is on the distribution of these projects in various regions of Thailand. Looking at both the biomass and biogas projects, it is obvious that Northeastern Region has the highest number of projects, followed by Northern Region.

oot Economy”. It was first conceptualized during the former Energy Minister, Mr. Sontirat Sontijirawong, in 2019. At that time, He had a great plan on building countrywide power plants using renewable energy sources such as energy crop, napier grass, biomass, wastewater, organic wastes or agricultural wastes and simultaneously support the grass root economy who provide the sources of these raw materials through Community Enterprises and Networks of Community Enterprises.
