The palm oil sector is dominated by Indonesia, Malaysia & Thailand, with volume amounting 90% of the world’s production. While the oil constitutes only about 10% of the palm production, the bulk of 90% is biomass. Many plantation companies are exploring conversion technologies and unlocking the potential of OPB (oil palm biomass) from its trunk to its fruit branch (EFB).

Besides palm, Indonesia produces over 200 million tonnes of biomass per year, comprising of agriculture residues (palm waste, rice husks, sugar bagasse), estate crops and forestry wastes. Indonesia therefore presents an attractive market for biomass technology with its low feedstock cost and high electricity demand.

Next generation technologies have claimed its potential to substantially expand the feedstock base for biofuels production (e.g., lignocellulosic biomass, nonedible vegetable oils, algae). Some of these processes (e.g., gasification of biomass followed by synthesis to liquid fuels- BTL) are already in their early commercialization stage.

CMT’s 2nd BiomassWorld 2009 offers top industry panel, leading plantation and power generation companies to discuss on biomass conversion to energy products, challenges and issues. Mark your calendar to be at this premier gathering to network and forge lasting business opportunities.

What Will Emerge for Biomass? Critical Insights on Biofuels from Biomass Shared by Dr. Larry Song

Posted on : 13 Nov, 2008

Biomass currently represents one of the most promising alternative fuel feedstocks. What are the options for biomass to biofuels conversions? In a presentation made to an audience of more than 100 key executives at the Biomass World 2008 conference, Dr. Larry Song, leading expert in Biomass conversion and Bio-refinery with over 25 years of industrial experience with companies like BP and ExxonMobil, asserted that "biomass energy and biofuels implementation both have highly complex sets of drivers, enablers, success challenges and issues."


Dr. Larry Song, who is currently the General manager of global consulting powerhouse Nexant Shanghai, has managed numerous projects in over 22 countries including China and the U.S, advising on the technical, economic, commercial and strategic planning aspects of biomass to energy projects.


According to Dr. Song's presentation "Prospects of Biomass to Liquid Fuels," in order to ensure commercial success of the biomass to biofuels pathway, it would be necessary to:

  • Secure a supply of sustainable biomass feedstocks including cellulosic biomass, which is capable of meeting demand for long term production.
  • Develop biomass conversion technologies to allow for cheaper and more abundant feedstocks.
  • Substantially reduce operational costs of converting biomass to biofuels, to stay competitive with petro-diesel and on par with oil prices.
  • Integrating biomass into the refining value chain to produce petrochemicals.

As biomass races to the forefront as a promising alternative energy and biofuel source, Dr. Song's presentation provides an objective assessment of the current challenges facing biomass development as well as its potential as a viable biofuel source, and will set the tone for the Biomass World 2009 conference scheduled to be held in Jakarta from February 9 to 10.


Biomass World 2009 will examine upcoming trends and developments in the Biomass to Energy value chain. Biomass World 2009 will also lend further insights into the potential of biomass as a sustainable, viable alternative energy source.


Keynote speakers for this critical two-day conference will include global experts in all facets of the biomass industry to discuss:

  • The economics of converting biomass for heat, power, fuels or chemicals.
  • Investment potential and demand for biomass energy options in Asia Pacific.
  • Comparative life cycle assessment of biomass to power and biofuels.
  • The latest information in the research and development into conversion of cellulosic biomass, including woody biomass and oil palm biomass, into liquid fuels.
  • Updates on CDM development and claiming carbon credits for biomass projects with case study on biomass plant.

As Dr. Song summed up in his presentation, "Biofuels from biomass sources have a potentially bright future as an important new supply source, and refiners will welcome them if they can meet a number of important competitive requirements."


Free access to a preview version of Dr. Song's breakthrough presentation "Prospects of Biomass to Liquid Fuels" is available at


Biomass World 2009 will gather into one arena, experts in all areas of the biomass industry to address the long-term outlook and challenges to the development of biomass energy as a viable alternative energy source. Attendance at Biomass World 2009 is essential in clarifying biomass energy challenges and projecting long-term ROI.
