Addax Bioenergy operates a high efficiency new cogeneration plant on the site of a greenfield bio-ethanol facility in Makeni (Bombali district, Sierra Leone). The cogeneration plant is fired by biomass residues composed of over 400,000 tons of cane bagasse and trash per year. A 32 MW generator is installed to produce 118,000 MWh of electricity per year for export to the national grid, therefore reducing CO2 emissions from fossil fuel intensive grid power generation units. The plant was commissioned in May 2014 and is operational since then.
