Biomass Power Generation: Sugar Cane Bagasse and Trash

The WBP (woody biomass power) project called for building and operating a commercial-scale BIG/GT (biomass-gasifier/gas turbine) power plant in Northeast Brazil using plantation-grown wood as fuel. Building on knowledge generated by the WBP, the SCP (sugar cane power) was designed to involve analytical work and technology development that would enable future implementation of the WBP-type power plant technology with sugarcane-derived biomass as fuel instead of wood.
