The company rents the deserted and sand land of the herdsman and hires the herdsman to plant psammophytes and buys the stumping waste from them. A 2*15MW biomass factory can benefit 5000 households. And more than 7000 herdsmen can add more than 10,000 RMB annually.

After the reports, Mr. Jon Li, Mr. Edward Smith and Director Huo both showed their positive opinions of the biomass program. This program aims at combating desertification and makes full use of the stumping waste of the desert shrub to generate electricity power. It can be a pilot program to develop green energy by focusing on the ˇ°Three Carbon Economyˇ± through ˇ°Carbon reduction, Carbon Absorption, Carbon Captureˇ± which will lead to the new way of industrialized desertification treatment instead of public desertification treatment.

Mr. Jon Li pointed out that China Inner Mu Biomass Power Co. Ltd is a successful example of commercialize green low carbon economy. The system and the successful practice are worthy of greater support. Meanwhile, he hopes the company can have a clearer mode of green and low carbon development.
