Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity
In Hau Giang Province, a 20 MW biomass power plant project is to generate power by burning rice husks produced in the adjacencies. The electricity is sold to the Vietnam Electricity to replace the grid power and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This is the first biomass power plant for commercial use in Vietnam and contributes to the country to achieve its Paris Agreement goal to “reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 9% in 2030 compared to cases where no counter measures are taken.”
Expected GHG Emission Reductions
= (Reference CO₂ emissions)
– (Project CO₂ emissions)
・ Reference CO₂ emissions
= (Quantity of the electricity generated by the project) [MWh/year]
×Emission factor [tCO₂/MWh]
・ Project CO₂ emissions
= (Heat Quantity needed for project’s fuel
transportation ) [GJ/year]
×Emission factor [tCO₂/GJ]
