Introduction of Biomass CHP Plant in Flooring Factory

PP(Japan): Pacific Consultants Co.,Ltd.,
PP(Ethiopia): African Bamboo PLC

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

Diesel consumption for supplying heat and power at the new bamboo flooring factory of African Bamboo PLC (Hawassa Industrial Park) is reduced through the installation of a biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant. The CHP plant consists of a biomass boiler (12MW) and an organic rankine cycle (ORC) turbine(1.2MW) for power generation. The Installed capacity is 12MWth and 1.2MWe. All of the heat and power generated are consumed in the factory. Bamboo residue is used as the biomass feedstock.


Expected GHG Emission Reductions

7,940 tCO2/ year

Emission reductions

= Reference emissions – Project emissions = 7,940-0
Reference emissions
= Diesel consumption for heat and power supply which the project replaces X Diesel emission factor
= 8,822 (at 100% capacity)
Considering the capacity utilization (1st year: 40%, 2nd year: 87%, 3rd year: 93%, 4th year onwards: 100%) and the useful lifetime of 8 years, the reference emission is 7,940.
* Conservativeness is ensured by not considering the grid power usage which the project replaces.
