Research evaluates the potential of bagasse for power generation


A survey conducted by Polytechnic (Poly) USP, in Brazil, shows that the crushed sugar cane can be used by plants to produce electricity in a thermal power plant with steam turbines and its potential. The study of the electrical engineer, Fernando dos Santos, from the production ranking of midsize mills in t he State of São Paulo, takes into account an annual average of 2 million tonnes of cane crushed by the mill. “With 500 tons of waste each thermal power plant could produce 42 megawatts of electricity per hour for 4600 hours per year. The more sugar cane is crushed, the greater the potential energy. “

The research analyzed the potential of sugarcane biomass to generate electricity, which is produced and how it can be harnessed. “
