Biomass fuels are environment-friendly fuels made from renewable organic resources of biological origin (biomass). Biomass energy is carbon-neutral. While carbon dioxide is released when biomass fuels are burned, its source material absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere when it is growing, thereby effectively making its greenhouse gas emissions equal to zero.
In theory, biomass power can be generated continuously by burning organic materials.
Biomass power generation, which enables prediction and control of the amount of electricity generated, plays a valuable role because electricity cannot yet be stored in large quantities.
Another advantage is that biomass power generation works on the same principle as thermal power generation, making it relatively easy to mix biomass fuels into fossil fuels in thermal power plants.
Japan’s Energy Mix Policy (“Long-term Energy Supply and Demand Outlook” compiled by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) aims to promote renewable energy and expand biomass power generation. To this end, the development and operation of biomass power plants have been rapidly promoted. To secure fuel resources for large biomass power generation plants, Japan needs to depend on wood fuel imports.
On July 3, 2018, the Japanese Cabinet approved the Fifth Basic Energy Plan, which declares for the first time that renewable energy will be made a principal source of power supply for the purpose of decarbonization.
