Opportunities

In order to save energy and protect environment, Council of Agriculture (COA) plans to increase wholesale price of Biogas electricity from NTD3.9/kilowatt to NTD5/kilowatt for pig farms. On the other hand, COA will decrease loan rate to 1.04% for buying biogas power generation equipment. This incentive policy will start from large scale pig farms (5000 or above heads on farms), then move to 2000+ heads pig farm. There are 128 5000+ head pig farms and 353 2000+ head pig farms in Taiwan by the end of 2015. Taiwan imports such equipment from Netherland, USA, and Germany.3

In 2015, Taiwan’s meat consumption was 93.1kg/capita/year, however, the meat self-sufficiency was 78.3kg/capita/year. In this case, Taiwan imported total USD1.16 billion in 2015, and expected to increase year on year.
