Thorny Park Biogas Demonstration Plant

The project is to create a pilot demonstration biogas plant in a partnership between Sucropower and a sugar cane farmer in the Mandini area, Northern KwaZulu-Natal. The plant will process a feedstock of dedicated Napier Grass and residue sugarcane tops and trash to produce biogas which will be used to generate electricity, fuel and fertilizer to enhance the viability of the sugarcane farming operations as well as create the opportunities for further downstream business opportunities within the local community.
