Feasibility Study for Ethanol Production from Sugar Cane

Feasibility Study for Ethanol Production from Sugar Cane

BBI was engaged to conduct the feasibility of establishing a sugar cane plantation and ethanol production facility in Northern Ghana, in the Makango region. The Makango location was a central location relative to the primary sugar cane production areas which had access to the national electrical grid, navigable waterways, community support services, and a large local labor pool. The plant is to produce 150,000 cubic meters of fuel ethanol per year, the Regency fuel ethanol project will require approximately 2,150,000 tonnes of mill-able cane annually, based on ~26,900 hectares of production with a yield of 80 tonnes of mill-able cane/ha, and 66 liters of ethanol per mill-able tonne). Financial analysis showed the project to have a Return on Investment of 35%
