Biomass

About the Project

Biomass has always been an important energy source for the country considering the benefits it offers. It is renewable, widely available, carbon-neutral and has the potential to provide significant employment in the rural areas. Biomass cogeneration programme is implemented with the main objective of promoting technologies for optimum use of country’s biomass resources for grid power generation.

The Benefits

The project activity utilizes renewable biomass for energy generation and thus displaces the use of coal. Thus, use of this renewable energy reduces equivalent amount of coal burning and in turn achieve GHG emission reduction. The project technology uses renewable biomass as a fuel which is carbon neutral. The project also employs air pollution control technology of to control the level of the particulate matters. Therefore, the technology can be said as environmentally safe and sound technology. The project is located at a Greenfield palm oil production plant. Thus, no energy generating units or the energy demand (user plant) existed at the project location in preproject scenario.
