Toshiba opens biomass power plant

Toshiba has announced its first ever biomass power plant is now operational.

Fuelled by palm kernel shells, the 50MW facility – located in Japan’s Fukuoka prefecture – will reduce emissions and supply 80,000 households with electricity.

It will also be the site of a new carbon capture technology facility, which is currently under construction. This is part of the Demonstration of Sustainable CCS Technology Project, a five year initiative backed by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment.

“We are pleased to commission our very first eco-friendly biomass power plant. We are building a broad portfolio of environmentally friendly power technologies, from renewables through to carbon capture, and we also continue to test and develop leading-edge steam turbines and generators that offer higher efficiency and improved performance,” said Takao Konishi, VP of the Thermal & Hydro Power Systems & Services Div. in Toshiba’s Energy Systems & Solutions Company.
