Iran inaugurates country’s largest concentrated biomass power plant

According to IRNA’s report from the Ministry of Energy, Iran recently inaugurated its largest concentrated biomass power plant, which operates on biogas.

A ceremony took place on April 11th, attended by President Ebrahim Raisi and Energy Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian via video call.

In addition to the power plant, water and wastewater projects totaling US$283.33 million were also launched.

The 7.2-megawatt plant is situated next to a wastewater treatment facility in western Tehran and is anticipated to generate 50 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.

This initiative aims to reduce fuel consumption at the treatment facility by utilizing the generated heat to raise the temperature in anaerobic digestion tanks.

According to an IRNA report, this plant is projected to decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 225,000 tonnes and natural gas usage by 24 million cubic meters per year.
