2015 – 2017
China – Inner Mongolia Province
The biomass power plant’s installed capacity is 12 MW and utilizes local surplus biomass residues (mainly
agricultural biomass residues-corn straw) for electricity. It is estimated that the Project can deliver 80.1GWh of
electricity to the Northeast China Grid (NEPG) utilizing about 110,600 tons biomass residues per year. The
biomass utilized by the project, which is all collected from nearby areas of the project, was burnt or left to
decay before the project.
The project contributes to social and environmental well being by:
– Helping improve the living conditions of the local people due to increase in the income from existing resources.
– The biomass collection system to be utilized will provide direct and indirect employment to the local population.
– As a result of the project activity 25 local people will be trained on advanced transferable skills such as
biomass collection, package and storage ect.These local workers also own the farm.They could use these
learnt technology skillsto in their own farm or help other neighbor to collect the biomass efficiently.
