It was designed and installed an electrical solution for biomass energy generation at a major sugarcane processing mill in Mexico. This is the first cogeneration project of the country: the system reuses sugarcane bagasse as a renewable resource to generate nearly 155 GWh of electricity per year, which would be enough to supply around 28,000 homes with power for 12 months. The processing mill is located in Mexico and has a daily capacity of processing more than 12 tons of surgarcane. Since 2010, it has used a renewable energy source to convert sugarcane bagasse and in the mean time it was produced electricity and thermal energy (steam).
With this electrical installation, the plant has now began to generate enough power to redirect excess energy to other companies of the group and, potentially, even supply the electrical grid. Production costs have been greatly reduced by facilitating the replacement of fossil fuel with bagasse biofuel to generate electricity, along with huge reductions in environmental impact.
