China has demonstrated the use of a 200 kW biomass gasification power generator at Nyaungdon, in the Ayeyarwady region of Myanmar. The project was implemented with the technical assistance of China’s Science and Technology Ministry.

Dr Zaw Min Naing, Deputy Director General of Research and Innovation Department in the Myanmar administration said that the project would be a great help to the Myanmar Government’s plan of nationwide electricity supply by 2030, and expressed the willingness to increase technology cooperation between Myanmar and China in the future.

Xiang Changwan, Chairman of Kunming Dianyan New Energy Technology Development Company, which developed the technology, said that the technology can be used to convert waste paddy husk into electricity, and can run continuously for one month. He also pledged to further develop the power generator in cooperation with the Yangon Sino Technology Company, aiming to promote application of biomass energy utilisation in Myanmar.
