Despite falling oil prices, renewable energy continues to grow. In the past twelve months announcement are made across Asia on new biomass power or biofuels projects, capacity expansion :


Sinar Mas to develop biomass power plants

– Jan 8, 2015


Thai firms plan 120 MW of biomass projects

– June 30, 2015


Six regions to develop bioenergy, says minister

– Jul 14, 2015


Indonesia secures $500m ADB loan for power sector upgrades

– Oct 5, 2015


Japan hopes to see biofuel flights running by 2020 Tokyo Olympics

– Jul 8, 2015


China’s ethanol imports hit new record high in Sep at 121,625 cubic meters

– Oct 24, 2015


China to revive corn-based ethanol amid record high stocks

– Oct 16, 2015


According to IEA, renewable energy represents the largest single source of electricity growth over the next five years, driven by falling costs and aggressive expansion in emerging economies. 


Significant development of advanced biofuels (especially for aviation), policies on biofuels mandatory blending levels and capital incentives, along with the development of secure local feedstock supply chains are enabling growth in biofuels worldwide.


While North Asia, especially Japan, is ramping up their imports for wood pellets for co-firing or dedicated biomass power plants, a significant scale-up in rest of Asia using domestic biomass resources are set to grow too.


Against a background of low oil price, how is the global biomass and biofuels market going to perform next year?


For the biomass abundantly endowed countries in South East Asia, what are the key considerations when deciding between local utilization or export?

Industry News


A type of biofuel – Hydroprocessed esters and fatty acids (HEFA) is meeting the demand for renewable fuels. In 2014, it’s estimated that over 1 billion gallons of HEFA fuels were produced.


American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) International has approved the use of HEFA in jet engines. They have allowed it to be blended at a 50 percent rate with petroleum jet fuel. The biofuel is said to be almost similar to petroleum fuels.


United States’ U.S. Department of Defense is contemplating on using HEFA biofuel in its JP-8 jet fuel. Apart military jets, commercial airlines in the USA such as Alaska Airlines, KLM, and United Airlines have also shown keen interest to use HEFA biojet fuel in its fleet.


Another common type of HEFA fuel is renewable diesel or biodiesel.


Globally 10 plants produce renewable diesel. Finland’s Neste is the world's largest renewable diesel producer while others include – Italy’s ENI, USA’s Diamond Green Diesel, and Sweden’s Preem. Besides, Total is also planning to convert its French refinery in La Mede to produce biodiesel while another four renewable diesel projects are also underway.


More on biofuels will be discussed at CMT’s Biomass & BioEnergy Asia Summit on 26-28 January, 2016 in Bangkok. A session on ‘Commercializing Sustainable Alternative Biofuels to Reduce Aviation’s Footprint on the Environment’ will be led by Robert Boyd, Manager, Biofuel Deployment Project, Aviation Environment with the IATA Centre - International Air Transport Association at the summit.

Japan will be hosting the 2020 Olympics and Paralympic Games in Tokyo when the country plans to use sustainable aviation fuel. Boeing has partnered with Japanese aviation industry stakeholders to develop sustainable aviation biofuel for flights during these two global events.


A five-year "roadmap" to develop biofuel by 2020 has been prepared by Next Generation Aviation Fuels (INAF) – which is a consortium of 46 organizations including Boeing, ANA (All Nippon Airways), Japan Airlines, Nippon Cargo Airlines, Japan's government and the University of Tokyo.


The 2020 global event is a time when millions of people from across the world will be visiting Japan and therefore it’s a good time to introduce aviation biofuel.


The US Department of Energy claims that use of sustainably produced biofuel reduces lifecycle carbon dioxide emissions by 50 to 80% compared to conventional petroleum fuel.


Some of aviation biofuel feedstock that Japan is looking at are – municipal solid waste, plant oils and animal fats, used cooking oil, algae, cellulosic biomass and residues from the wood products industry.


INAF’s roadmap covers the entire biofuel supply chain from procurement of raw materials, production of sustainable aviation fuel, to blending biofuel with conventional petroleum jet fuel and how biofuel will be incorporated into an airport's fueling infrastructure.


Meanwhile Boeing already has active biofuel projects in the US, Australia, Brazil, Africa, China, Europe, Middle East and Southeast Asia.


More on aviation biofuel will be discussed at Biomass & BioEnergy Asia on 26-28 January, 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand.
