Proposed plans for diversifying the country’s energy supply, to include energy produced from biomass gasification, are now a step closer to becoming reality.
Biomass gasification is a process that uses organic material to make electricity.
The Government of Samoa, the Samoan Trust Estates Corporation and the Scientific Research Organisation of Samoa have been investigating the potential of using Samoa’s senile coconut plantations to produce energy for a number of years.
The proposed project seeks to establish the biomass supply chain necessary to attract external investment to construct the country’s first gasification facility.
