Biomass utilisation is an important issue for ASEAN Member States, where agriculture and forest industry remain crucial. Most biomass residues are treated as waste and either incinerated or sent to landfills – practices which may cause environmental degradation if continued. This waste, which varies in type, grade, and characteristic, is sufficient in quantity for co-combustion with coal. Biomass is expected to be one of the most promising renewable fuels for CO2 emission reduction and for rural electrification, which is crucial for rural development. This study aims to suggest policy measures for ASEAN Member States to achieve an appropriate biomass mixing rate with coal for co-combustion in power generation – a strategy that will help to abate emissions.
