Technologies for exporting electricity of 100 kWh/t of clean cane while producing white sugar: a success story* [Full subscriber]

Abstract There is increased focus on enhancing revenue through co-generation due to declining sugar prices over the last 6 years. Therefore, while setting up our 3500 t cane/day greenfield sugar project in Maharashtra (India) we have incorporated energy-conservation measures in all sections of the plant, without compromising the reliability and stability of its operations, to maximize electricity export per tonne of cane. A 23 MW co-generation power plant, based on 110 bar high-pressure steam cycle, designed for maximum power generation per tonne of bagasse fired with minimum auxiliary power consumption, was installed to extract maximum energy from sugarcane. Direct pumping…
