Hamparan Project

Avoiding methane emissions from a cassava starch factory and generating clean energy

Badge

0.1 The Project

To extract the tapioca flour - a key ingredient in Indonesian cuisine - from the cassava roots, the Hamparan cassava starch factory generates a water pollution of 300,000 population-equivalent which in turn, emits massive fugitive methane emissions.

0.2 The Solution

The Hamparan project treats the industrial wastewater of a cassava starch factory, captures its fugitive methane emissions and transforms these environmental liabilities into renewable energy which is then distributed by the national utility to 19 surrounding villages.

The expected verified emissions reduction is 30,327 tCO2 eq/year.

0.7 The project host

Hamparan Bumi Mas Abadi is a local Indonesian company that produces around 40,000 tonnes of native starch per year from cassava roots locally sourced from approximately 4,000 smallholder farmers. The cassava starch factory has been operational since 2009 and employs almost 100 workers.

Hamparan’s cassava starch factory passed Gree’s ESG safeguard standards:

  • Satellite monitoring and spatial analysis of the mill’s supply chain to verify no risk on deforestation and peatland development of cassava feed
  • Compliance and integrity analysis to assess low reputational risk
100%
Deforestation-free assessed
Low reputation and integrity risk
ESG

Gree implements ESG safeguards of the project to strengthen the framework of a project, program or specific action and manage risks concerning the environment, governance and society.
