Gazasia were invited to speak at the 2014 Biogas Asia Pacific Conference in Kuala Lumpur, a summit to promote the adoption of green, renewable energy resources for energy generation.
CEO, Richard Lilleystone, presented a case study on Gazasia’s liquefied biogas project for transport vehicles in the Philippines. He has spearheaded Gazasia’s work in Aseagas, Gazasia’s joint venture with Aboitiz, organising and overseeing investigations into the various sites proposed for the establishment of Aseagas’ first waste-to-energy plant in Lian Batangas. He has developed a team of specialists, ensuring the correct resources were available to co-ordinate operations with the Aseagas team at the site. He and the team have since concentrated on selecting and working closely with appropriate suppliers, providing a seamless interface with the Aseagas team at each phase of the project.
Richard also shared his past experience working at Gasrec Ltd in the UK, where he was CEO of the company until 2011. Under his leadership, the company sourced and established a successful management team, which designed, developed and deployed the world’s first LFG to LBM plant.
Prior to that, his sector activities included business development to several alternative energy companies based in the UK, advising on planning and development, and sourcing waste contracts. Specialized and associated interests include industrial wastewater treatment and transport orientated development platforms for emerging economies.
The conference was an opportunity for Gazasia to show how challenges can be overcome in order for biogas to reach its full potential.
