DP CleanTech built the first biomass power plant in China. DP has its Asia headquarters in Beijing and has developed more biomass power plants than any other company in China.
DP CleanTech is a pioneer, advocate and practitioner of biomass power and green energy in China. Our power plants have improved the livelihoods of millions of farmers; helped state owned utilities profitably meet renewable targets and have improved the perception of biomass power as a viable industry. Emissions regulations in China are amongst the most rigorous in the world, and DP’s technologies have integrated flue gas cleaning technology to ensure that these regulations are met efficiently and cost effectively. Economic, consumer and urban population growth have contributed to an emerging waste disposal problem and DP has both combustion and gasification technologies to address this market.
DP CleanTech developed China’s first biomass power plant in 2006 using European technology, and has since built on average one plant every 2 months. DP is responsible for over 30% of the biomass power plants operating in China today. In addition to biomass combustion, DP‘s European waste-to-energy gasification technology is being introduced.
DP CleanTech’s Asia Headquarters in Beijing acts as the engine for our operations throughout Asia. We currently have more than 100 employees working throughout the supply chain on everything from design and engineering to quality control right through to commissioning and site service.
This makes DP the leader in providing high quality high performance biomass power plants and related technologies. Our plants are proven to have a better performance and generate better long term profits for our clients. Furthermore our advanced Flue Gas treatment technology has been incorporated into our solutions to more cost-effectively reduce emissions to be well within China’s stringent regulatory standards. Our extensive experience and our global supply chain have given us the ability to deliver quality solutions and excellent value.Contact

A recent Reuters article highlighted the ongoing problem of waste management in China, with a spotlight on a newly opened Waste to Energy (WtE) incineration plant located in Wujiang, China. The plant is owned and operated by China Everbright International and is a good example of the positive steps being taken to tackle the waste problem, whilst addressing the environmental necessity for renewable energy generation. The Wujiang plant is designed to burn 1,500 tonnes of waste every day and generates heat to run turbines that deliver 500,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity to the power grid. The electricity is sold at preferential tariffs, around double those of coal-fired plants.
China is proactively dealing with pollution on many fronts, and waste management is only one of the many challenges. However, as the article highlights, the country has struggled to reach previous targets, with daily incineration capacity of 235,224 tonnes by the end of 2015 missing a goal of more than 300,000 tonnes. The view is that there is significant spending needed to reach the 2020 target which is 500,000 tonnes of waste a day, or 2.5 times the 2014 figure. At the same time, the parallel development of a recycling industry is a necessary supplement to the overall framework for tackling waste, and new ways to encourage recycling are needed.
In our view, the level and constancy with which Chinese government policy is encouraging WtE and renewable energy is both positive and having a significant impact. But over time the industry must become profitable and self-sustaining without such support. The importance of an effective waste collection infrastructure and the deployment of highly efficient waste incineration technologies are key to this objective. DP offers proven solutions for various types of WtE using the same grate technology as the Everbright Suzhou plant, with the addition of FGT and specialised emissions management.

Renewables will account for nearly half of the increase in global power generation by 2035 – with China generating more than the US, Japan and the EU combined – according to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) latest annual World Energy Outlook 2013 report released in October. Against this backdrop, there will certainly be related growth in the equipment supply and infrastructure to support the biomass industry in China. Jorrit Gosens reviews the issues affecting the NPV (Net Present Value) of proposed and operational projects in China, and evaluates factors such as rising fuel prices; decreasing heat and carbon credit trade potential; difficulties in finding a market for heat, and the relative efficiency of CFB vs. Grate Firing boiler systems. Gosens concludes that under current and likely market circumstances, boiler efficiency and plant availability will play increasingly significant and defining roles in determining potential project success. His research demonstrates that projects using CFB boilers are less likely to achieve positive NPV, whilst those investing in high pressure, high temperature, superior quality boiler systems are more likely to achieve positive long term results.
Jorrit Gosens, PhD is a leading academic and consultant in the renewable energy sector. Having previously advised and authored Government environmental schemes in the Netherlands, for the last 4 years he has been focused on researching Chinese renewable energy issues through his position at the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences Beijing. During this time he has spoken at numerous conferences, and published a number of papers addressing renewable energy policy and development in China.
