Nippon celebrates opening of biomass power facility

Nippon Paper Industries Co. Ltd. held a completion ceremony March 16 for the biomass mixed combustion

power generation facility at Ishinomaki Hibarino Power Plant, operated by Nippon Paper Ishinomaki Energy

Center Ltd., which had been engaged in unit trial operations since September 2017.
The power generation facility has commenced business operations as of March 1. Characteristically, the facility

permits mixed combustion using wood biomass. The company seeks to contribute to the preservation of domestic

forests (a key issue in recent years) by using unused woody materials mainly from Tohoku, including Miyagi

Prefecture. In addition, the company will collect wood pellets from Asia and North America to increase the biomass

blending ratio.
The company is advancing diverse business operations that utilize nationwide mill facilities and land resources

as well as technology, know-how and human resources developed over many years; with the aim of contributing

to better living and cultural progress. The company's energy business operations are one aspect of these efforts,

which contribute to the stable supply of electric power to society.

In addition to the stable supply of electricity, Nippon Paper Ishinomaki Energy Center seeks to contribute to industrial

in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, and the promotion of the use of wood biomass as well as the stable supply of electricity; and

will maintain the operation of its biomass mixed combustion power generation facility in safety first.
