Algaetech’s Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Paduka Syed Isa Syed Alwi, and the Assistant Managing Director of P.S.C. Starch Products PCL, Sirin Sereethoranakul, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to coordinate and cooperate in developing bio-remediation of wastewater using algae technology, for their Bio Renewable Project.

The companies have agreed on the scope of understanding and the area of collaboration including: management consulting, project strategy and planning, project management consulting, investment project management, bio-renewable consulting, sustainability management consulting, project management tools and project personnel.

P.S.C. Starch Products PCL, based in Thailand, is in the business of manufacturing and distributing agriculture foods and renewable energy products from tapioca. The wastewater generated from the production process creates approximately 5,000 cubic meters of wastewater a day.

The rapid growth of Thailand’s industrial sector has resulted in a need for pollution control to prevent destruction of the country’s environment and aquatic life, as well as the hazard posed to human health and the environment when waste is improperly treated, stored, transported, disposed of or otherwise managed.

Malaysia-based Algaetech International Sdn Bhd has been focusing its attention on developing expertise, technology and workforce skills in algae technology for bio-remediation to minimize environmental destruction from industrialization. The company’s Algae Integrated Management System (AIMSys) uses wastewater to grow algae, and will be at the heart of Algaetech’s assistance to P.S.C. Starch on the establishment and facilitation of the algae-based bio-remediation treatment plant.
