Host Country: Sri LankaJCM Feasibility Study (FS)

10MW-scale Biomass based Power Generation

Implementing Entity: Obayashi Corporation & EX Research Institute Limited

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project under consideration aims to operate a power plant using a sustainable short-rotation crop as the main fuel for its power generation. Electricity to be generated at the power plant is exported to the National Grid. Sri Lanka has set up National Policy to promote electricity supply from renewable energy sources for up to 20% of the total nation's grid electricity supply by 2020.

Expected GHG Reductions

40,052 tCO2/year

  • Reference CO2 emissions: 49,701tCO2/year
    Electricity generation and supply to the grid (70,080MWh/yr) x Emission factor for grid electricity (0.7092tCO2/MWh)
  • Project CO2 emissions: 9,649tCO2/year
    Biomass fuel procured (wet base) (134,569t/yr)
    Emissions from cultivation, transportation and pretreatment of 1 ton of biomass (0.0717tCO2/t)
