Background

Hiang Seng Fibre Container Co., Ltd., is one of the largest single integrated paper and packaging manufacturer in Thailand.[2]

From approximately 2006 to 2008, a modernization project at the Bangkok HSFC Plant power station increased the capacity of the main unit at the paper mill's power station - a unit built around 1986 - from 25 MW to 36 MW.[1][3]

Company website

In 2021, Hiang Seng Fibre Container's website said the following:

"In the Paper Mill we successfully installed the Reactor from Europe for effluent treatment by anaerobic bacteria. The bacteria digest contaminants in effluent and produce methane gas as by product. Effluent from the Reactor will have 75% lower in COD which requires much lower electrical power in the aerobic treatment, while methane gas becomes fuel for steam boiler. The system preserves the environment, reduces the use of limited natural resources such as coal and conserves the energy at the same time."[4]
