1 A Case Study on a Rice Husk Cogeneration Power Plant Capacity Development for the Clean Development Mechanism26-27 March 2003 Sunway Hotel, Phnom Penh, CambodiaMila J. Jude Cogen 3 Country Coordinator
2 A Case Study on a Rice Husk Cogeneration Power Plant Presentation OutlineCogen3 ProgrammeCogeneration: How Does It Work?Angkor Prosperous Rice MillEnvironmental and Economic BenefitsConclusion
3 Cogen 3 Programmeis the third phase of the European Commission (EC)-ASEAN cooperation programmepromotes the implementation of Proven, Clean and Efficient Biomass, Coal and Gas cogeneration projects by facilitating business partnerships between EU suppliers and ASEAN industriesThe Full-Scale Demonstration Project (FSDP) – a grant of 15% of the cost of the equipment will be given to a project that qualifies as FSDP. An FSDP is a showcase in ASEAN aiming to convince other potential end-users to select the appropriate technology in order to replicate successes.Country Coordinators in: Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia and SingaporeCambodia Team
4 CogenerationCogeneration (Combined Heat and Power or CHP) is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat, both of which are used.
13 The region’s (central Cambodia) naturally fertile and sandy soil enables farmers to grow Angkor Rice’s premium-quality Neang Malis rice in a traditional way without chemicals.
14 More than 25,000 families are Angkor Rice’s members and growing Neang Malis rice. There are no middlemen. Angkor Rice sets a high standard. The Agriculture Division distributes high quality seeds and instructs the farmers in planting rice.
17 Proposed Rice Husk-Fired Cogeneration Power Plant Angkor Rice Mill Steam turbine system with 1 MW electric capacityPresent capacity of the mill is 10 tons/hour. Proposed expansion of another 10 tons/hourRice husk will be used as fuelTwo scenarios:steam has no valuesteam has value equal to 50% of the cost for steam generation in a boiler using fuel oilExcess Electricity exported to other customersUtilization of heat for drying
18 Proposed Rice Husk-Fired Cogeneration Power Plant Angkor Rice Mill Scenario: Steam has no valueTotal Investment Cost including contingency: 1.5 million euroNet Present Value: million euroIRR: 49.7%Discounted Payback Time: 2.3 yearsCogeneration Project Lifetime: 20 years
19 Proposed Rice Husk-Fired Cogeneration Power Plant Angkor Rice Mill Scenario: Steam has value equal to 50% of fuel oil costTotal Investment Cost including contingency: 1.5 million euroNet Present Value: million euroIRR: 64.4%Discounted Payback Time: 1.6 yearsCogeneration Project Lifetime: 20 years
20 Cogen3 Pre-evaluation and Recommendations Project seems feasibleFurther investigations are recommended, concerning:detailed design (electricity capacity of steam turbine, utilization of capacity)necessary investmentreal value of steam (benefits of drying using steam)necessary investment in drying processnecessary investment in electricity distribution gridall issues, (especially government regulations) related to selling of electricity to other partiesRequires a full feasibility study and investigation
21 Benefits of the Rice-Husk Cogeneration Power Plant Environmental BenefitsLess pollutionUses rice husk, which is considered an agricultural wasteEconomic BenefitsSavings (electricity production)Income generating (selling excess electricity, ash sales)Generates jobSaves on fuel, no foreign currency needed
22 Opportunities in Cambodia Biomass – opportunities in rice mill, rubber processing plants, palm oil refineryGas – gas supply in Cambodia is in the exploratory stage. If gas is available, there will be opportunities in Buildings (hotels, restaurants, hospitals, schools, offices, supermarkets,etc.) and Industries (cement, pharmaceuticals, garments)
