The prospects and limitations for wood fibre bioenergy development in Indonesia

1,231 views

Published on

In this presentation, CIFOR scientist Ahmad Dermawan discusses Indonesia’s plan for bioenergy development and the opportunities and challenges inherent in the recent interest in wood pellets from South Korea and China. In developing countries, he argues, the challenge is not (only) on technological issues or production of bioenergy, but also on social and governance issues.

Ahmad gave this presentation as part of the ‘Feedstock from wood and forestry and conversion technology’ session at the second Annual World Congress of Bioenergy: Renewable Energy for Sustainability, held in Xi’an, China on 25–28 April 2012.

Opportunities Potentially large areas available for new plantations • Approximately 13 million ha of land for biofuels Government support, esp. in “food and energy zone” • Lowered or exemption of taxes • Fast tracked land acquisition • Concession rights valid for 60 years, extendable to 90 years • Visas and immigration assistance THINKING beyond the canopy
