3.4MW Rice Husk Power Generation Project in Maule
- Representative Participant
- Asian Gateway Corporation
Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity
3.4 MW biomass power plant is installed in the region of Maule in Chile, which utilizes the agricultural residue such as rice husk.
The generated power is supplied to an electric company and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by replacing the grid power.
In addition, this project prevents air pollution caused by open burning of agricultural residue.
By adopting Organic Rankin Cycle technology, which requires less water consumption, it also contributes to the climate change adaptation regarding low rainfall expected in Chile.
Expected GHG Emission Reductions
= Reference CO2 emissions (Ry) [tCO2/year] − Project CO2 emissions (Py) [tCO2/year]
Ry = (Electricity generation) [MWh/year] × (CO2 emission factor) [tCO2/MWh]
= 27,286 [MWh/year] × 0.314 [tCO2/MWh]
Py = 0
