Benato Co., Ltd. Contributes to Local Communities through Renewable Energy and Starts Operation of Megawatt-Class Waste Edible Oil Power Plant “Hyogo Green Biomass Farm” Aiming for a Decarbonized Society
Benat Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto; President and CEO: Toshikazu Fukuda) engages in the generation, supply and sale of electricity using natural energy, etc. As part of our efforts to address key sustainability issues aimed at creating a
recycling-oriented decarbonized society that reduces emissions and achieves decarbonization, we will open the Hyogo Green Biomass Farm, a power plant that uses waste cooking oil, and will begin operation on November 30. .
The Hyogo Green Biomass Farm, located in Kakogawa City, Hyogo Prefecture, is not affected by weather conditions, unlike variable power generation facilities such as solar and wind power generation, and is capable of stably supplying 1,920 kW of electricity to 3,600 households. This is a megawatt-class waste cooking oil biomass power plant.
Waste cooking oil biomass power generation is a stable power generation system that collects waste oil from business establishments such as local restaurants and supermarkets in a decarbonized society, and is attracting attention around the world as a local production for local consumption recycling type electricity. However, the cost of collecting and refining waste cooking oil has become a problem, and 28% of waste cooking oil in Japan is exported overseas and used as fuel for biomass power generation overseas.
By operating the “Hyogo Green Biomass Farm”, Benato Co., Ltd. will not only contribute to a decarbonized society, but also contribute to the creation of a decarbonized society. Through the secondary use of waste, we will realize a recycling-oriented economic society and solve the problems of electricity and garbage.
The Hyogo Green Biomass Farm has diesel generators installed on a site area of approximately 1,098 square meters, and consumes up to 2,500 tons of waste cooking oil annually. In addition, even in the event of an emergency shutdown, this waste cooking oil biomass power plant can be quickly restarted at the flick of a switch, 24 hours a day, regardless of the time, unlike power plants that use renewable energy. Since it is possible to supply electricity, in the event of damage such as wire disconnection, it is possible to transfer the emergency generator installed in the power station to the evacuation site and transmit power. In addition, it can be used as an emergency power source at local disaster prevention centers and evacuation sites. [Image 2
In the future, the Hyogo Green Biomass Farm will solve the
decarbonization problem with renewable energy, and not only will it be a strong ally in the event of power shortages in the event of an emergency disaster or a power outage due to wire breakage, but it will also provide local schools with waste cooking oil. Through recycling power generation, we aim to be a power plant that contributes to the local community, such as contributing to food education and
environmental education, and we will work with local residents to create a better environment.
The design and construction of the “Hyogo Green Biomass Farm” involves the design and development of a power generation facility that uses waste cooking oil derived from biomass, which is a secondary resource (recycled resource), and the establishment of a power generation business to supply clean energy. By doing so, we will tackle the world’s energy problems, develop waste cooking oil generators in Japan and overseas, realize power generation with secondary resources in a decarbonized society, and aim for a recycling-oriented society through local production for local consumption business and stable supply of electricity. Secondary Resources Holdings Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka; President: Koichi Hirota), which aims to contribute to society by striving for emergency measures and emergency measures.
In addition, the support for collecting and refining waste cooking oil discharged in the region is not bound by the framework of a trading company that handles products that support producers such as renewable energy businesses, industrial equipment, and power generators. Toshi Yuta Shoji Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Osaka, Representative Director: Masashi Oki), which operates a business that creates Benato Co., Ltd. will continue to operate the “Hyogo Green Biomass Farm” and realize a future that contributes to humanity and society by creating new value through the spread of natural energy and smart life.
