London, UK (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Based on cumulative capacity, the primary feedstock for biopower in mid-2014 was wood waste, which accounted for nearly 32% of total biopower capacity as it is available from a wide range of sources, e.g. timber businesses. Bagasse was the second most widely used, with a share of around 25.8%, driven by sugarcane’s position as a key crop in the three of the biggest biopower markets – Brazil, India, and China. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), which is generally known as trash or garbage and is also a ubiquitously available feedstock, was the third most-popular at just over 16.7%. Landfill gas, wastewater and palm oil captured smaller shares, with other raw materials contributing 17.25% to the total biopower capacity.
As of 2013, Brazil’s installed biomass power capacity stood at 1,730 MW, or 29.7% of the total in that year. The UK comes next accounting for 12% of the overall biomass power capacity and with an annual capacity addition of 641 MW. India is a high potential biomass power market which made a considerable addition to its capacity equating to 10% of the world capacity addition. Thailand, Germany, China, Poland, and Italy followed in, with shares of 7.3%, 6.5%, 5%, 4.8% and around 2.5%, respectively. All other nations’ biomass power capacity additions captured the remaining share of 22% of the world’s yearly capacity.
