0tonnes of biomass/year
Abidjan based Sania palm oil refinery is switching its energy supply from natural gas to renewable biomass.
The project replaces two boilers running on natural gas with one new boiler using biomass residues for steam and electricity production in Sania's refinery. Biomass fuel is sourced from palm kernel shell and rubber tree exploitation surplus. Other benefits include: the use of ash as fertilizer in palm oil tree plantations and the creation of jobs for local communities (construction of the plant, rubber wood collection, transportation).
