Thai Biogas Energy Company Limited

TBEC is owned by Navdata OY and Al Tayyar Energy. Since 2016 TBEC has been managed by Asia Biogas Group leading provider of biogas project development, design, construction and operation services in ASEAN.

Established by PEMF (a fund supported by Finnfund) and ATE (a fund supported by Prince Moulay Alaoui of Morocco) in 2003. TBEC is today the leading biogas producer in the Mekong Region with 8 power plants in Thailand and 1 plant in Lao PDR. TBECs plants clean waste water from various agri-factories, generating biogas in the process. The biogas is partly supplied to the agri-factories to meet their energy needs, replacing polluting coal/ diesel or HFO. The rest of the biogas is used to produce electricity for supply to the local grid.

TBECs plants reduce local air and water pollution, provide renewable energy & electricity, and help in mitigating climate change through methane capture. In addition, each project safeguards rivers and lakes by ensuring no wastewater spills occur from the host factories, and by doing so protects the livelihood of all locals, such as fishermen, that are dependent on those water resources.

TBEC projects produce c. 44 million nm3 of biogas or 88 GWh equivalent of biogas annually, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 320 000 tCO2e per year.

As Southeast Asias leading biogas company, TBEC is committed to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and IFC guidelines in its activities.

TBEC has been recognized as a premium biogas company with awards such as ASEAN Energy Award (2010, 2016), Thailand Energy Award (2010, 2014, 2014, 2016), Crown Standard (2009) and Gold Standard (2011).
