Sugar cane must go through to physicochemical and biological processes to be transformed into sugar, alcohol and energy.

Let’s see how is done:

    Bagasse
      1929
      Coal Water
        1928
        Customers
          1927
          Ethanol Production
            1926

            Process of fractioning dry sugar in different presentations according to the customer’s needs.

              Sugar
                1924
                Cachaza-en
                  1923

                  Juice purification process by means of sludge or impurities sedimentation. Flocculent is added to the hot juice and sent to the clarifiers, where the separation of insoluble solids is achieved.

                  Juice clarification
                    1922

                    Temperature increase of the cane juice (from room temperature to 102°C) using steam and heating equipment to accelerate the separation of insoluble solids.

                    Juice Warming
                      1921

                      Transformation of the steam energy generated in boilers, into electrical energy, using turbo-generators. It supplies the needs of the plant and allows the sale of surplus power to the public network.

                              This plant sends completely softened water to the boilers and the cooling towers. A portion of the treated water in this plant is used as dilution water in the fermentation. Thus, the process does not generate any liquid effluent.
