The project involves cultivating 3.6 million tonnes of sugar cane on a 63,000-hectare parcel of land in Sennar state, Sudan’s sugar cane belt.

The sugar cane will be processed into sugar for the local market and used to fuel a cogeneration facility as well as to make ethanol, energy pellets, animal feed, biological fertilizers and biodegradable packaging.
