Philippines biomass plant to be ready by 2015
A P2 million (€33,000) biomass plant under development in the Filipino province on Isabela is likely to begin operations early next year, according to reports.
Isabela Biomass is building the facility, which will generate 20MW of renewable energy from rice husks supplied by a group of local rice millers. Ground broke on the project last December.
Once complete the plant will be able eligible to receive P6.63/kWh under the nation's Feed-in Tariff scheme, which was approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission in July 2012.
