The purpose of the project is to utilise the available renewable energy sources in the form of biomass residues received as a result from the preliminary treatment of wood for the production of bleached kraft pulp. The biomass residues are combusted in a specially designed biomass boiler to generate thermal energy in the form of water steam that is necessary for the production of the pulp.

The project helps the region to stimulate and commercialise the use of biomass energy technologies and markets. It demonstrates the viability of biomass plants which will Support improved energy security, improved air quality, alternative sustainable energy futures, improved local livelihoods and sustainable renewable energy industry development.
