The Siam Cement Biomass Project involves the modification of five cement manufacturing plants in Thailand to enable them to use renewable biomass fuel in place of fossil fuels, leading to substantial greenhouse gas emission reductions as well as significant environmental and socio-economic benefits.
The cement plants previously burned a mix of fossil fuels in their kilns, including coal, lignite (brown coal), pet-coke, and heavy fuel oil. With the implementation of the project these have been largely replaced by renewable biomass from a variety of sources – primarily rice husks but also wood-processing residues and other agricultural waste such as palm trunks, palm fibre and palm nut shells.
