White Nile and CAMC strike deal
8 November 2010
Sudan-based White Nile Sugar Co. has signed an agreement with China’s Beijing-based CAMC Engineering Co. for the development of an ethanol production facility and an animal-feed plant.
It is expected that both plants will come online towards the end of April 2012 when White Nile begins its sugar production, but managing director Hassan Satti refused to comment on the overall cost of the projects.
Construction will begin in January next year.
The ethanol refinery will have an annual output capacity of 46 million litres from molasses, while 100,000 tonnes of animal feed will be produced each year.
The biofuel factory will be Sudan’s second ethanol plant, helping to boost its current 65 million-litre output capacity which is produced at Kenana Sugar Co. – the country’s largest sugar producer.
According to the managing director of Kenana El Mardi, the company aims to increase its ethanol production to 130 million litres by 2013.
