Makeni Project - Bio Ethanol Plant
Makeni project consists of a sugarcane estate, a bioethanol refinery and a biomass fuelled co-generation (electricity) plant.
The plant will supply green electricity and heat to the bioethanol plant from the sugarcane biomass, and generate 120 GWh per year for the national grid, representing approximately 20% of Sierra Leone's needs of electric power. The plant reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 56.000 tCO2 per year through the replacement of fossil fuel-intensive electricity production.
