Japan Renewable Energy Corp (JRE, Minato-ku, Tokyo) built a woody biomass power plant with an output of 24.4MW in Kamisu City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan.

JRE had a ceremony to celebrate the completion of the plant July 4, 2019. It plans to procure about 18-20t of wood, which is necessary as fuel, in Japan.

The plant, "JRE Kamisu Biomass Power Plant," uses construction waste materials produced by dismantling houses, unused materials derived from thinning, timber waste and trees cut for large-scale development projects as fuel.
