Bioenergy combine and sustainable biomass resource management in Jilin: innovation and demonstration

Last changed: 20 August 2020

The aim of this project is to improve and develop technologies and therefore support demonstrations and commercialization of Swedish bioenergy combine technology in China.

A small scale bioenergy combine system, in Jilin province in China for electricity (5 MW) and heat production will be demonstrated. The demonstrated bioenergy combine system will be able to integrate local industries such as mushroom cultivation, wood processing and even bio-pellet production.

The academic partners will be responsible for technological improvement and development to tackle possible problematic biomass feedstock and thereby to increase flexibility of Swedish bioenergy combine technologies. 

Project activities:

  1. Integration of Bioenergy Combine and Sustainable Biomass Resource Management: Phase A – Preparation and planning for the project (Project number 2012-03096; financed by VINNOVA 2012-2013)
  2. To develop high energy efficiency and small-scale bioenergy combine in Jilin: innovation and demonstration (project number 2013-02015; financed by VINNOVA and Swedish Energy Agency 2013-2016)
  3. Development of optimal regulation for efficient ecombustion of ash rich biomass (projectnr 37816-1; financed by Swedish Energy Agency  2014-2017)
