We have powered our modern human lives this past century through the burning of fossil fuels and release of CO2 into the earth’s atmosphere. This release of greenhouse gases (currently at their highest levels in 800 000 years) has increased sharply in the last 150 years. These heat-trapping gases have in turn led to changes in climate (global warming) and have accelerated the rate of ice loss across Greenland and the Antarctic continent, which in turn has led to rising sea-levels. Climate change has also led to worsening of extreme weather conditions, of which we have seen alarming examples in recent years (drought, wildfires, floods, cyclones, etc).
Naturally, in order to slow down the climate change, we need to reduce the Greenhouse gas emissions.
DSJ Holdings Inc., are driven to finding solutions to the growing problem of global warming.

It is our ardent wish
To make a great contribution to the reduction of CO2 on earth by creating the new biomass fuel from organic wastes all over the world.
To make this project a symbolic one between Japan and Indonesia.
To share the benefits brought by this project widely with every company and people involved.
To return the company’s profits partly to Indonesia by means of building wells to provide safe and clean water, building schools, improvement of roads and so forth.
To supply safe, secure, stable and affordable next-generation biomass fuel for home heating, agricultural businesses, biomass power plants, and large thermal power plants all over the world as the alternative fuel to coal.
To be the World’s leading company in the field of production and sales of biomass fuel.
Biomass Fuel with Problems to Solve
Biomass fuel is drawing attention of the industry, since it is so-called carbon neutral, which is supposed to keep the total amount of CO2 the same as a whole. In Japan, biomass fuel is developed from bark and chips of wood which have not been used as materials for building, furniture, paper or other products, and such utilization is growing year by year. However, according to the estimation by the Forestry Agency, in 2020, biomass power plants will be in need of 63.9 million tons/year, while the anticipated amount of domestic fuel supply is merely 4.2 million tons/year, which shows that the supply will be in extreme scarcity.
And agricultural businesses; and also for biomass power plants, cement plants, paper mills, and thermal power plants as the alternative fuel to coal; and furthermore for steelworks as reducing agent, by making the best use of our unrivalled new detoxification technology to be applied to the wastes generated in the whole Asia.
Our Attention Directed to the Palm Oil Tree Residues
Our attention is directed to the residues of palm tree which have been discarded in vain as waste such as EFB (Empty Fruit Bunch), OPT (Old Palm Trunk) in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, and even coconut wastes, mangrove trees, rubber trees, and birds’ droppings in the Philippines, India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
Palm oil is derived from palm trees, and it is utilized as the material for bread, margarine, cosmetics, snack food and so forth, which are dispensable to our daily life.
The demand has been continuously rising, and the amount of dumped EFB and OPT after the extraction of palm oil has been increasing simultaneously.
Such EFB and OPT are being left piled up in the open air, as the people there do not have the technology to remove the hazardous contents such as chlorine, potassium and sodium which emit Dioxin when burnt. Such circumstance leads to the environmental destruction in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.
Contribution to Indonesia
It is said that the water quality in Indonesia is significantly inferior, which makes the life expectancy in this country much shorter than the average one of global population. In the future, we are willing to return a part of our company’s profits to the people in Indonesia. We would like to build wells with the Japanese technology so that all the people in Indonesia will be able to use safe and secure water at any time.
We want to contribute to the country by means of supplying clean water, improving roads and infrastructure, and building schools under the guidance of JETRO and JICA.
