Overview of the Tokushima Tsuda Biomass Power Plant

Preparations for this facility were made by Tokushima Tsuda Biomass Power Plant G.K., which is jointly funded by RENOVA, Osaka Gas Co., Ltd, Forestbank Co., Ltd., DAIRI FPC Co., Ltd. and Tokushima Denki Sangyo Co., Ltd.

This power plant is located in the Port of Tokushima-Komatsushima, one of the largest lumber industrial parks in Japan. The Port of Tokushima-Komatsushima used to receive a large amount of foreign timber to meet the rapidly growing domestic demand for housing during the period of high economic growth, but over time, the port has been used less and less.

With the start of the plant's operation, the port is expected to be revitalized through the utilization of port facilities for the arrival and departure of fuel transport vessels and the creation of new jobs that will result.

"Going forward, we will operate the power plant while prioritizing coexistence with the local community and safety. We will seek to contribute to the achievement of a decarbonized society in cooperation with local residents and other stakeholders," the company said in a press release.
