Scale of deployment: 

The project will provide heating for building area of 110×104m2 with the annual heat supply of 53.8×104 GJ, with the annual power generation of 2.1×108 kWh, and with the power supply of 1.89×108 kWh. 

Project start/end dates: 


Current status of the project: 

In construction 

China Eximbank actively uses the People’s Bank of China’s facilities of carbon emissions to promote green and low-carbon development. The project is invested and constructed by Horqin Zuoyi Zhongqi Hyundai Star Banner Biomass Power Generation Co Ltd, located in Baokang industrial park, Horqin Zuoyizhongqi, Tongliao City, Inner Mongolia, China.

The project will make full use of the local advantages of abundant agricultural biomass to produce power and heat, improve the heat-supply system for residents, provide thermal energy for industrial parks, and develop centralised heating systems –  all of which are conducive to saving energy, cutting pollution, and improving the environment.

The project produces heat by burning biomass fuels in an incinerator, vaporising liquid water into steam by the boiler, and then generating electricity with water vapor by turbine generator. It includes the building of a circulation fluid-bed boiler with high temperature and pressure, equipped with the steam turbine generator unit, and reserving the expansion space for one boiler and one generator. This InfraTech is an urgent solution for solving the problems of environmental pollution and limited thermal energy.
