The Japanese company IREX acquired the first test batch of biologic fuel from the VTK group of timber companies for the needs of environmentally friendly power plants.

According to the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, the Japanese investor continues negotiations on expanding the regions of cooperation for the import of woodworking products - there is interest in companies in the Khabarovsk Territory, Amur Region and Primorye.

At the beginning of the year, VTK Group sent 200 kg of fuel briquettes and 200 kg of wood chips to a Japanese company for quality control. IREX, evaluating the quality, requested an additional supply of 60 tons of fuel briquettes.

In the long term, the Japanese investor plans to make contact for the supply of up to 2 million tons of pellets and fuel briquettes, which are considered environmentally friendly fuel, per year.

Eco-friendly fuel from wood processing waste in May began to produce in Transbaikalia. The first resident of TOP Transbaikalia today launched a plant for the production of pellets - fuel pellets. As raw materials for the finished product, waste from sawmills operating in the Trans-Baikal Territory is used.

Last summer, the Japanese biofuel-based electricity company IREX announced plans to waste processing woodworking industries of Yakutia.
