To fulfill the management’s vision to utilize byproducts of sugar manufacturing process and respond to the need for energy use of the country, Buriram Sugar Public Company Limited (“the Company”) invested in the construction of the biomass power plant that uses 100% bagasse as fuel (approximately 450 ton/day) under the name of “Buriram Energy Co.,Ltd”. With its production capacity of 9.9 MW, Buriram Energy Co.,Ltd uses conveyor systems to convey bagasse from Buriram Sugar PCL and sells 8 MW of the electricity generated to Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA).
