“China is an agricultural country,” said Frank Miao. Farmers used to burn harvest waste, and the government decided to capture this energy by constructing a biomass power plant. At the end of 2006, the total biomass power generation capacity in China was approximately 2,200 megawatts (MW). The planned capacity of biomass power plants is 30,000 MW by 2020.

Depending on the size of the plant, three different biomass power generation technologies are used: gasification, direct-fired, and co-fired with other fuels. “Currently, more than 90% of biomass electricity is from direct-fired biomass power generation,” Miao said.

“Compared with other solid fuel power generation,” stated Miao, “there are two key technologies in biomass power generation”: the fuel feeding system and the boiler technology.
