The energy function of sugar mills: Case study in Nicaragua
This case study examines a sugar mill in northwestern Nicaragua which has been converted into a power generation plant. During the sugar season, power is produced from bagasse, a by-product of sugar production, and from eucalyptus during other periods of the year. This case study addresses some of the initial findings which have shown interesting economic, environmental and social benefits when c... more
