Since 2014, Albioma has been rolling out its thermal biomass model in Brazil, a country where the sugar industry means strong development potential for the production of renewable energy from bagasse.
Brazil is the world’s biggest producer of sugar and ethanol, with 625.96 million tonnes of sugar cane harvested in 2018 and nearly 400 sugar mills operating nationwide. Sugar harvests are also longer than in Overseas France, enabling the plants taken over by Albioma to be fired all year round using only locally-sourced biomass, in order to provide renewable electricity on the grid.
