The electricity exported yearly by our power plants to the national grid of Mauritius represents just under 30% of the annual electricity generated in the country. Furthermore, Omnicane produces 40% of the country’s renewable bagasse-based energy.


The bioethanol distillery can produce up to 24 million litres of bioethanol a year depending on the volume of molasses processed. The bioethanol can be used in pharmaceutical and industrial products as well as a source of biofuel in transportation and power production. The distillery’s by-products of raw gas and concentrated molasses stillage are then further transformed to produce food-grade carbon dioxide and liquid fertilisers respectively. The production capacity of the bio-ethanol distillery is of 80,000 litres a day.
