Volume 3, Issue 6

Feature: Not just jatropha
It has been a slow start in Africa. But community operations are gradually raising the profi le of renewable fuel, once tarnished by its link to food production, a sensitive issue in a continent that is ravaged by famine and poverty. Recent happenings in Sudan have also boosted the commercial side of the green fuel sector, with a little external help from experienced nations. The country’s fi rst ethanol plant opened on 10 June this year in Kenana, and will produce 65 million litres in its fi rst year, rising to reach its capacity of 200 million litres in two years from sugarcane. The plant was built by Dedini, a company from Brazil – the world’s authority on sugarcane ethanol. The ethanol project is a joint effort between the ministry of Energy, Kenana Company and Giad Company. Sudanese authorities also plan to develop the sugar industry in the country and convert molasses to ethanol. The Sudanese government intends to construct some 18 ethanol plants.
