he energy crops will be used as biofuel for generating power to electrify rural households through gasification technologies"
GELAMA I is facilitating the East Kalimantan Provincial Government in developing a mining sector mitigation action called Mine Reclamation for Rural Renewable Energy (LAMA-MORRE).
It is a mitigation action that integrates land-based and energy sectors to produce wood-based bioenergy for rural electrification. It will increase revegetation of cleared mining concession land and rehabilitation of degraded land surrounding those mining areas by establishing short rotation coppice energy crop plantations. Woody biomass from the energy crops will be used as biofuel for generating power to electrify rural households through gasification technologies.
This initiative will not only increase revegetation rates on cleared mining land, but also accelerate the rehabilitation of degraded land outside those areas. In addition, increased carbon stock from revegetation and rehabilitation outside the forest estate is additional and will remain relatively stable over long periods of time as long as biomass power plants continue operations.
LAMA-MORRE is designed to be comprehensive. It covers capacity development for upstream producers and business entities, such as community groups in managing energy crop plantations, and downstream power producers, while simultaneously creating enabling conditions through supporting policies and government support.
