About the project
The objective of the project is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by installing a biomass boiler to replace the existing natural gas boiler used at “La Providencia”, a sugar mill established in 1882 that produces cane sugar and by-products. All materials produced are used as raw material in the production of the final product. For the biomass operation, bagasse is used, which is the residue from the sugar cane sugar manufacturing process, the remainder of the cane stalks after the sugar juice it contains has been extracted. By reusing this waste, the project has the capacity to reduce approximately 417,000 tCO2e over a 10-year period.
