Greenheart to add bioenergy plant to Suriname facility
Hong Kong-based investment company Greenheart Group is set to use bioenergy to power one of its tropical hardwood processing facilities.
It has signed multiple agreements with various suppliers and contractors to construct a bioenergy plant which will generate power for the processing facility in West Suriname from its own wood waste.
Greenheart claims the plant will convert five tonnes of wood waste into 18 tonnes of steam per hour which, in turn, will supply a 1.5MW turbine to generate electricity for the facility.
‘The construction of this facility is another key milestone for us,’ says Greenheart COO Andrew Fyfe. ‘In addition to our goal of achieving full FSC certification for all our concessions, the ability to convert our own wood waste into green energy is another crucial step in our sustainable growth strategy.’
A completion date for the project has not yet been announced.
