Global taxonomy on what considered green in biomass fuel

The conversion to biomass energy has In the latest Nationally Determined Biomass from agricultural industry waste takes the form of residual played a key role in reducing our dependence Contributions (NDC) document, the stalks, straw, leaves, roots, husk, and nut or seed shells. Widely available, on fossil fuels across the world. Biomass is government targets Indonesia to be carbon- renewable, and virtually free. Waste biomass is an important resource. derived from organic material such as trees, free by 2060 or sooner by stopping the use With the global campaign to combat climate change, countries are now plants, agricultural and urban waste. of fossil energy and switching to renewable looking for alternative sources of energy to minimize green house gas

Indonesia Program of Biomass Co-Firing – requires up to 8 million tons biomass per year

The energy from biomass can be transformed energy. In the energy transition scenario, the (GHG) emissions. Aside from being carbon neutral, the use of biomass into usable energy through direct and indirect government has launched biomass co-firing as from agricultural industry waste for energy reduces dependency on the means. But is this renewable energy source an alternative energy solution that is claimed to consumption of fossil fuel; hence, contributing to energy security and really as green as some claim? be greener. climate change mitigation, and converting waste to energy. Based on Climate Bond Initiative EU PT PLN as Indonesia’s biggest electricity player Taxonomy, for biomass to be effective at in Indonesia is aggressively replacing coal with reducing greenhouse gas emissions, it biomass co-firing. By 2024, it is estimated must be produced in a sustainable way (the that the 52 coal-fired power

plants (CPP) will only timber feedstock allowed is waste use biomass co-firing with a total capacity of wood). Biomass production involves a chain 18,154 Megawatts and requires up to 8 million of activities ranging from the growing of tons of biomass per year. And other state- feedstock to final energy conversion. Each owned/private-owned coal using industry step along the way can pose different is next in line to switch into renewables to sustainability challenges that need to be conform to their respective carbon-emission managed. reduction obligations.
