GG56 is our partner and sole representative in South Korea. GG56 is founded by Kim Young-kun and the former Prime Minister of South Korea, Dr. Han Seung-soo, Chairman of the 56th United Nations General Assembly and the current Chairman of the Council of the Presidents of UN General Assembly (UNCPGA).
About SSGE Bio Energy and AGRI BioCoal
The Earth’s forests are one of our most important resources. These forests and their ecosystems absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. While woody biomass fuels may appear to be renewable and help reduce carbon dioxide emissions, with no other renewable options, the global demand for wood-based fuels will drive an increase in deforestation resulting in a reduction in the Earth’s natural ability for carbon sequestration.
Each year the world generates more than 100 billion metric tons of agricultural waste. In many cases, these residues are disposed of by either incineration, creating an immediate release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses and while creating no additional value to the ecosystem, or utilized as a fertilizer, resulting in a slow release of methane during decomposition. Methane is a major contributor to the global greenhouse effect with an impact 26 times that of carbon dioxide.
Using our proprietary technology, SSGE converts agricultural residues into biocoal, a carbon neutral, 100% renewable, environmentally responsible energy source. By utilizing a perpetual and abundant supply of agricultural residue, we believe we can help meet the world’s energy needs while contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases, and reduce the reliance on woody biomass.
SSGE AGRI Bio Coal has an energy density value of 4,800 – 5,000 kcal/kg. Grindability is similar to coal meaning no boiler or material handling modifications are needed. Additionally, SSGE’s bio coal is hydrophobic and does not need protection from weather elements during transportation or storage. Together, these properties make our bio coal the ideal drop-in substitute for coal, and it is carbon neutral with greatly reduced greenhouse gas emissions during combustion.
SSGE Agri-Biocoal Production Facilities in Myanmar
The SSGE production base is strategically located in Myanmar where agricultural growing cycles are nearly continuous. Having an abundant supply of raw materials within the same region, and being located near deep-water terminals further minimizes the environmental impact of transportation. We further reduce our impact by using bio-fuels within our own operations. SSGE’s operations are certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomass (RSB), which encompasses a comprehensive evaluation of our operations from our biomass feedstock supply chain through our finished product.
Another primary benefit from SSGE’s AGRI BioCoal process is the direct and positive economic impact to agrarian communities, not only in the form of jobs, but also new sources of farming income. These help to raise the overall standard of living as well as encourage responsible and ethical farming practices.
The scope of SSGE includes the ownership of propriety technology, full operational design and fabrication, agricultural and raw material management, bio coal production and technical support. We currently have an ongoing production capacity of 300,000 metric tons and expect to reach 5 million metric tons by 2027. The technology is easily located and scaled wherever biomass is available.
AGRI BioCoal is a clean fuel from a perpetual natural source… it is a fast and perfect solution for a cleaner environment and the health of our natural resources. It will help improve the lives of agrarian communities, drive agricultural technology improvements, and encourage ethical farming practices.
Support of The Paris Agreement
The Paris Agreement of 2016 provides commitments from nearly 200 parties to take actions to limit the global temperature increase in this century to 2 degrees Celsius, and take further actions towards a goal of 1.5 degrees.
Using AGRI BioCoal will reduce fossil coal CO2 emissions by 2.5 tons for every ton of fossil coal replaced. Because AGRI BioCoal is a fast, drop in replacement for fossil coal, and requires no major implementation capital, it is one of the fastest means to create meaningful results toward meeting these goals.
