SUDS future projects from sugar cane. Alcohol distillery Sugar refinery
Proposed Alcohol DistilleryALL YEAR ROUND OPERATION • Anhydrous alcohol for blending with Gasoline . • Initial capacity of 45,000 l/d of AA all year round from Final Molasses.[15 Mil litres /yr] • Possibility to double capacity in future by using ‘rich molasses’ as compared to final molasses . • Vinasse concentration and possibility to blend for production of liquid fertilisers.
Proposed Sugar RefineryALL YEAR ROUND OPERATION • Refined sugar for export to European market. • 600 t/d of refined sugar operating 300 days per day. • Off crop production, from VLC/PWS produced during crop and stocked [65,000 ts] for off crop refinery production.
