Mini Green Power is selected by the Ministry of Economy as the winner of a FASEP study on agro-pellets production in Thailand.
The project, led by a consortium of French companies and insured by Mini Green Power (MGP), aims to produce 20,000 tons of industrial-grade agro-pellets. The upgraded biomass will provide additional income for Thai farmers organized in an agricultural cooperative in the Petchabun region. Once the model has been validated, it will have to be replicated.
The project must demonstrate both the interest of agro-pellets production in a country where tensions are beginning to appear on traditional biomass (wood chips or bagasse), and the relevance of PGM technology, both for the production of drying heat necessary for the production of these pellets, as for the direct recovery of wet wood residues.
This selection is a new step in implementing MGP’s export-focused strategy from the outset. It will enable MGP to set the first milestone for the deployment of its innovative biomass technology in tropical Asia after the African milestones already laid in Madagascar and Togo.
Innovative actor of biomass and solar energy, at the crossroads of “big data” and traditional biomass technologies, MGP relies on its know-how to propose innovative solutions for renewable energy. This know-how is particularly well adapted to the needs of tropical countries rich in wet biomasses (green waste) or difficult to burn (bales, rice straw) and in search of solutions for the production of renewable energy at the local level. connected or isolated.
About Mini Green Power:
Created in June 2014, MGP supports companies and communities towards energy independence by limiting the impact on the environment. Mini Green Power relies in particular on its pyrogasification technology, which allows it to develop a very broad spectrum of plant residues into energy under the best environmental conditions. Mini Green Power has also developed a solar activity which is already implemented in Africa.
MGP is currently working on an isolated power generation project with a mini plant running from plant residues and coupled with solar energy. The first commercial applications are expected early 2019.

About the FASEP:
The Private Sector Study and Assistance Fund (FASEP) is the project aid instrument of the Ministry of Economy and Finance. Its objective is to contribute to the international development of French companies by positioning them in sectors where they have recognized know-how.
