Biomass plant launched in South Africa

In South Africa, Johannesburg-based renewable energy firm Ecofuels has launched its biomass-fired power plant.

The pilot model demonstration facility has a 120kW production capacity, enough to meet the electricity requirements of the business park where it is situated, and sufficient to power 30 homes. The plant generates 1kWh of power per 1kg of waste utilised.

The plant will start out by converting macadamia nut shells into power.

According to the managing director of Ecofuels, the plant can be installed wherever power is needed. He went on to explain that it can be used in any business type, including mines, government offices and farms.
