日本バイオマス発電事業会議

 

"Japan Biomass Demand
is SET to GROW!"

 

By 2020, Japan targets its power generation from renewable sources to increase by 50 percent, and Biomass power is expected to see a fivefold increase over the same period. The country's renewal of its renewable energy feed-in-tariff (FIT) scheme in July 2012, has prompted increased biomass throughputs and encouraged Japanese utilities to buy renewable electricity from wider areas, such as the industry sector.

 

"Japan's NSSMC expands biomass use"
~ 19 Feb 2015, Argus

 

"Marubeni to Build 37MW Biomass Power Plant in Western Japan" ~ 26 Feb 2015, Bloomberg

 

Japanese firms are increasingly keen on the biomass sector since its inclusion in the 2012's FIT scheme. Industries such as steel-making are expanding biomass usage for in-house energy generation to reduce emissions while the Japanese paper companies tap on biomass power generation to energize profit. According to Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry (METI), Japan's biomass consumption in January-November period last year rose by 6.7pc to 2mnt compared with the same period of 2013.

日本のバイオマス需要、成長への一途!

 

日本は2020年までに再生可能資源による発電量を50パーセント増やすことを目標とし、その期間にバイオマス発電は5倍の成長を遂げると見込まれています。2012年7月に。

 

日本は再生エネルギー固定価格買取制度(FIT)計画の続行を決定しましたが、これによりバイオマス処理量の増加が促進されたとともに、日本の電力会社が産業セクターな
どを含む幅広い分野から再生電力を購入するようになりました。

~アーガス・メディア 2015年2月19日

 

「丸紅、西日本に37MW バイオマス発電所を建設予定」
~ブルームバーグ 2015年2月26日

 

日本の各企業は2012年の FIT 計画に参加以来バイオマス部門への関心を拡大してきています。製鉄などの産業は、自家発電におけるバイオマスの使用を増大して排気量を抑制し、日本の製紙産業はバイオマス発電を利用することで利益を生み出しています。経済産業省(METI)の統計では、日本における昨年1月から11月のバイオマス消費量は2013年の同期間に比べて6.7パーセントから 2mnt に増加しています。

33 Biomass Power Plants scheduled for 2016 in Japan

Posted on : 11 May, 2015

 

Japan has witnessed a surge in biomass power plants after FIT (feed in tariff) system was introduced in July 2012. As many as 33 plants are expected to start operations in 2016 with 18 facilities being planned to start by April 2016.

 

The country's biomass consumption has also reportedly risen. According to ministry of economy, trade and industry data, in the period of January-November 2014, the consumption rose by 6.7 percent to 2 mn tons compared with the same period of 2013.

 

Some of the biomass plants already operating include - Green Hatsuden Aizu, Green Hatsuden Ooita, Nagano Forest Resources Utilization Co-op., Woody Kawai, Nakagawa Biomass and Miye Enewood.

 

Meanwhile Japanese steelmaker Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal (NSSMC) has begun full operations at a 330MW on-site unit co-fired by wood chips and coal at its Oita steelworks in southern Oita prefecture. The company targets to increase wood-chip consumption to 48,000 t/yr from just 7,000 t/yr by June, through the upgrade of a 149MW unit, co-fired with coal, at its Kamaishi works in northern Iwate prefecture.

 

In another development, Baker and McKenzie (Gaikokuho Joint Enterprise) is advising Renova and Kuni Umi Asset Management Co. on a woody biomass power plant investment. With a generation capacity of 20MW in Mukaihama, Akita city, the plant will be the largest power generation facility of its kind, that will use woody biomass as fuel.

 

More on Japan's biomass power market will be discussed at Japan Biomass Power Market on 18-21 May, 2015 in Tokyo.

Marubeni and Chubu Electric Power plan Biomass Power Plants in Western and Central Japan

Posted on : 22 Apr, 2015

 

Japan has witnessed many key players announcing biomass power projects. The most recent one is Marubeni Corp. that has announced a 37MW biomass power plant in western Japan. The plant will be located in Fukui prefecture and its construction is expected to begin in November 2015.

 

Marubeni is expecting the plant to commence operations in the summer of 2017. The biomass power plant will use woody biomass as feedstock. The station is slated to produce electricity for about 70,000 homes.

 

In another development, Chubu Electric Power has announced plans to build a 6.7MW biomass power plant. The plant will be located in Mie prefecture on the island of Honshu of central Japan.

 

The power station is expected to be commissioned in June 2016 and generate approximately 50 million kWh of electricity annually. Chubu's subsidiary Chubu Plant Service will take up construction of the plant.

 

The plant will use woody biomass materials as feedstock and is said to meet the electricity needs of around 13,800 local households per year and reduce 26,000t of CO2 emissions.

 

More on Japan's biomass power projects will be discussed when CMT's inaugural Japan Biomass Power Market comes to Tokyo on 18-21 May, 2015.

JFE Engineering to build USD-123 million biomass plant in Aichi prefecture

Posted on : 23 Mar, 2015

 

JFE Engineering will construct a biomass plant in Aichi prefecture of central Japan worth JPY-14.8-billion (USD 123m/EUR 101m). The Japanese firm has joined hands with local builder Kajima Corp and two other partners to win the contract from the city of Toyohashi.

 

A new company will be formed under the joint venture to construct and operate the biomass plant.

 

JFE will hold 60% in the joint entity. However, the financial details of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) are not yet disclosed.

 

JFE had already secured another contract to build a 50-MW biomass power plant in Oita prefecture for Japanese power supplier Erex Co in September 2014.

 

Sewage and food waste will be used in the biomass plant. The electricity produced is expected to be sold under Japan's renewable power feed-in tariffs (FiTs). Japan's FiT scheme was introduced in 2012 to boost the use of renewable sources of energy in the country and help reduce its dependence on nuclear energy.

 

The country has added 90 MW of biomass power capacity between July 2012 and end-April 2014, as per data from the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE).

 

More on Japan's biomass power markets will be discussed at Japan Biomass Power Market on 19-20 May, 2015 in Tokyo.

Takeei, Nippon, Sumitomo announce biomass power projects in Japan

Posted on : 02 Feb, 2015

 

Japan's biomass power scenario looks promising with several new projects announced. The most recent announcement came from Takeei Corp - investing 3 billion yen ($28 million) in a 6-megawatt biomass plant in Iwate prefecture of northern Japan. Earlier this year, Sumitomo Corp. announced its plans to build a 75-megawatt biomass power station in Aichi prefecture in central Japan at a cost of 20 billion yen ($197 million). Further a 100-megawatt coal-fired thermal power plant in Akita Prefecture will be built by Nippon Paper Industries Co. - that will use timber from forest thinning apart from coal as feedstock.

 

While Takeei's plant is expected to commence operations in two years' time, generating electricity for about 14,000 homes, Sumitomo's station is expected to start production by March 2017. Nippon's plant is also slated to begin commenrical operations in the same year as Sumitomo.

 

Summit Energy - the power generation and retail unit of Sumitomo already has a biomass power plant and it is also planning a third biomass plant in eastern Japan with Sumitomo.

 

Nippon and many other paper industry majors are expanding into commercial power generation given the country's shrinking paper industry and the proposed electricity sales liberalization.

While Oji Holdings Corp, has partnered with Itochu Enex Co. to found an electric power generation company; Daio Paper Corp. plans to enter the electricity retail market in the near future.

 

More on Japan's biomass power markets will be discussed at Japan Biomass Power Market on 19-20 May, 2015 in Tokyo.
