Assessment and Mapping of Biomass Energy Consumption in Sri Lankan Industries

Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority has completed the study of ‘Assessment and Mapping of Biomass Energy Consumption in Sri Lankan Industries’.
It presents the findings related to biomass consumption in the industrial sector. Industries studied under the survey were tea, rubber, coconut, textile, major manufacturing industries, power plants, sugar, tile, lime, brick, pottery and others. This study comprised of analysis of data at regional level (up to Divisional Secretary Division), and the outcomes are presented as maps, prepared using a GIS software. Sample survey method was used for data collection and extrapolated to regional level. Analysis and mapping of biomass supply areas and pricing was done as well, in order to study any location based supply issues for different industries.

Across the Nation – Promoting Sustainable Biomass Energy Production and Modern Bio-Energy Technologies

The Sustainable Biomass Energy project has compiled the different types of case studies implemented by the project to demonstrate and support small, medium and large-scale industries to become sustainable businesses through the adoption of modern biomass technologies. Large scale industries include hotel chains, estates and plantations, and manufacturing plants etc., and small-scale industries include home-based businesses, cottage industries, rural enterprises and entrepreneurs who benefit through technologies that can accelerate production and improve quality.

This five-year energy project works across the fuelwood value chain, tackling barriers for the wider adoption of modern biomass technologies from systematic growing of fuelwood species to mechanized harvesting and preprocessing, transport and storage to the efficient use for industrial processes. Additionally, this initiative supports the conservation of existing forests while meeting the wood energy demand for industries.
