The PNG Biomass Project will produce significant opportunities for community participation through employment, contracting, plant production and development related industries. It is expected that approximately 500 permanent local staff will be required to support the plantation and power operations. Opportunities for associated development projects include small scale 1 kW gasifiers, Biolite stoves and other village scale power deployment options.

The project will also require support from external companies and the benefits that flow into the community will encourage additional business and economic growth. Studies by independent experts suggest that a 30 MWe project will generate more than 2,000 additional new jobs in the region as a result of the project.

During the development stages, PNG Biomass has given assistance in the construction of nurseries within the community at locations including Leron, Forestry Research Institute, Ganef and Bampu, to support plant production. Landowners have developed skills and have been engaged to provide labour for the establishment and maintenance of tree trials and plant production.

The project also has agreements in place with a number of PNG institutions including the PNG Forest Authority, Forestry Research Institute and the Office of Climate Change.
