The company has supplied, installed and commissioned many biomass boilers in last few years, which helps the country to save nearly 50 million litres of imported furnace oil and diesel per annum through these bio-mass projects implemented by PROMET during 2008 to 2015.

Fossil fuels take millions of years to form within the earth and once we use up our reserves of fossil fuels, we will be out in the cold - literally - unless we find other fuel sources because scientists estimate the world will run out of fossil fuels within the next 50 to 120 years.

Therefore whether we like or not it is necessary to look for alternate energy sources, and for thermal energy generation in industries the most viable option is using bio-mass. Organic matter that is used as a source of biomass energy includes trees, timber waste, wood chips, corn, rice hulls, peanut shells, sugar cane, grass cuttings, leaves and part of municipal solid waste, to name a few.

A renewable resource like biomass has the potential to transform Sri Lanka’s energy supply for the better, since this energy source is renewable or will never run out and it can also be produced locally, which can save millions in foreign exchange for our country. In addition, this will support the development plan of our country by generating employment.
