Addax Bioenergy operates a high efficiency new cogeneration plant on the site of a greenfield bio-ethanol facility in Makeni. The facility is a game changer for the national energy mix providing a less carbon intensive energy source.
The cogeneration plant is supplied by biomass residues composed of bagasse from sugar cane and trash. A 32 MW generator is installed to produce electricity for export to the national grid, therefore reducing CO2 emissions from fossil fuel intensive grid power generation units. Makeni cogeneration project is expected to amount 20% of the energy mix of the country.¨The plant was commissioned in May 2014 and is operational since then.
