It has a designed annual agricultural waste and straw processing capacity of 300,000 tonnes and is equipped with a 130 tonnes/hour ("t/h") furnace and a 30MW turbine power generator. The project is expected to generate approximately 210,000,000 kWh of electricity annually.

Furthermore, Nanqiao Biomass Cogeneration Project ("Nanqiao Project") has recently completed construction and commenced operation as well. The total investment of the project is approximately RMB320 million and has a designed annual agricultural waste and straw processing capacity of 300,000 tonnes. Nanqiao Project has been equipped with a 130t/h furnace and a 30MW turbine power generator, to generate approximately 210,000,000 kWh of electricity annually.
