FIELD DISCUSSION on BIOMASS PLANTATION

08:10 AM,August 20, 2015

Since 2013 Korea Green Promotion Agency (KGPA) has developed a cooperation project with Perum Perhutani on the development of biomass energy, wood pellets.  This cooperation begins with the planting of Gliricidia sp  of 2000 hectares in Grobogan Regency, which is part of Semarang Forest Management Unit.  This plantation is currently still in the stage of trial planting, by implementing variations of planting spacing as well as variations of seeds generative and vegetative. If it is technically and economically feasible, the cooperation will be developed further by building a wood pellet factory and the plantation would be expanded up to 10.000 ha.

As a part of the project activities, on 20th August 2015 KGPA held a Field Discussion Program on wood biomass project with Indonesia forest experts from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) and also from the Faculty of Forestry of the Bogor Agriculture University.  This program was designed to share vision and ideas among the experts and KGPA members on the development of biomass plantation especially Gliricidia sp.
