Integrated Biomass Utilisation

China Everbright Greentech's biomass business utilizes biomass raw materials, such as agricultural waste and forestry residue, to generate electricity and heat.

China Everbright Greentech has the unique business model1 that includes the following three types of projects:

  • Biomass direct combustion projects
  • Biomass heat supply or electricity and heat cogeneration projects
  • Integrated biomass and waste-to-energy projects

China Everbright Greentech ranked fourth among all biomass companies in China as of December 31, 2016 in terms of aggregate power generation designed capacity of projects in operation, under construction and at the planning stage and ranked eighth among all biomass companies in China as of December 31, 2016 in terms of aggregate power generation designed capacity of projects in operation.

China Everbright Greentech focuses on regions with severe air pollution, abundant biomass supply and convenient access and have been securing new projects in areas such as Anhui, Jiangsu, Sichuan, Hubei, Tianjin, Henan and Jiangxi Provinces. With increasingly severe air pollution, in particular, the smog across China and abundant biomass resources in the rural area, the Group believes that its biomass business will continue to benefit from strong policy support and has the potential to achieve rapid and sustainable growth.

1 China Everbright Greentech is the only company to employ integrated biomass and waste-to-energy business model in China as of December 31, 2016. This business model is expected to not only company to employ such integrated business model in China as of December 31, 2016. This business model is expected to not only maximize environmental service output but also to lower the overall costs of development and operation as compared with developing and operating these projects on a standalone basis, thereby increasing the overall investment returns of the relevant projects.
