From the discussion of the Investigation Committee, it was decided that we choose three economies in Asian economies that are members of APEC.  Considering the discussion made at the Biomass Asia Forum and Workshops, Thailand, Indonesia, and China were selected.  Thailand was selected for the small-scale biomethanation plant and, if time is available, the effect of the ethanol plants on farmers’ life.  Indonesia was selected for the jatropha plantation.  China was selected for the effect of the ethanol plants on farmers’ life.  This chapter describes the detail of the investigation delegates, schedule, visited sites, and contact persons.
