Aura-Green Energy Co Ltd (AGE, Aomori City), a renewable energy-based power producer, announced Jan 30, 2019, that it will build biomass power generation facilities in Aceh Province (Sumatra) of Indonesia by forming a consortium with companies affiliated with the Indonesian government and local companies.

As fuel, empty fruit bunches (EFBs, residue of oil palm) will be used. They will be provided from a palm oil factory located adjacent to the biomass power generation facilities by using belt conveyors. AGE will start a power generation business after concluding a contract for stably receiving EFBs for 20 years.
