Our Business


Promoting Biomass Energy Utilization with Unique Technology

Our company's "biomass gasification/liquid fuel conversion" technology is based externally heated high-calorie gasification method using a stationary spouted bed developed independently.
In addition to collaborating widely with industry, academia, and government, our business development policy also includes collaboration with local companies in each region. We receive licenses for related third-party patents along with intellectual property rights when necessary, and we also apply for them independently.

Technology Features

  • 1 Externally heated steam reforming reaction using fixed-ground processing method
  • 2 High calorie gas (fuel substitute suitable)
  • 3 Clean gas (synthesis gas optimized)

Our History

  • 2006


    Chairman Sakai, with the backing of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), successfully established the inaugural biomass gasification and methanol synthesis unit. This groundbreaking facility encompasses gasification, conversion of product gas into liquid fuel (methanol), and the harnessing the gas for power generation.

  • 2009

    NEDO Project

    Shimizu Corporation and BME jointly produced a 30 kW small-scale power generation and methanol synthesis plant using recycled paper as raw material.

  • 2011

    Biomass Diesel Oil Positive Success

    An oil producer, along with car manufacturer, and BME collaborated to achieve the successful synthesis of biodiesel from biomass.

  • 2012

    Biomass Ethanol Positive Success

    Chemical maker and BME collaborated to achieve the successful synthesis of biomass ethanol.

  • 2013

    Singapore Subsidiary Established

    A Singapore-based subsidiary was established to serve as a Southeast Asian hub for access to diverse biomass resources.

  • 2016

    Commencement of Our initial Commercial Plant in Singapore.
