February 7, 2018 |

In Japan, the Nikkei reports that both Idemitsu Kosan and Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering have developed technologies to turn waste into pellets that can be co-fired with coal at up to 30%. Idemitsu Kosan’s technology uses wood waste and expects to begin production Thailand from where it will export 20,000 metric tons during the first year alone. Nippon Steel, on the other hand, has adapted machinery to press fibrous waste from palm oil production into similarly-dense biomass pellets.
