From Global Energy Monitor

Daio Mishima Mill power station (大王製紙 三島工場) is an operating 356- to 520-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Shikoku, Japan.[1][2]

The number of remaining coal boilers and coal power capacity may be uncertain.

Background on Plant

According to Daio Paper’s English website in January 2022, the Mishima Mill’s total production volume is about 2.10 million t annually, which accounts for about 8% of the total paper and paperboard production in Japan. It includes 17 boilers and 14 turbines, generates 3,540 t/hour of steam aannually, and has 520 MW of power generating capacity.[3]

Another Daio Paper website listed a 500 MW power generating capacity, noting that 100% of the electricity used at the paper mill is covered by private power generation, and surplus electricity is supplied to Shikoku Island through an electric power company.[4]

Carbon neutrality plans

In May 2021, Daio Paper's business plan noted that Daio was planning to reduce CO2 emissions by 46% compared to 2013 by 2030 by installing recycle-based power generation equipment fueled by biomass and waste, and shutting down one coal-fired boiler at the Mishima mill. It was also aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, shutting down both of the remaining two coal-fired boilers to eliminate coal usage, promoting energy conservation, and steadily expanding source of CO2 absorption through plantation.[5]
