The process of manufacturing crystal sugar requires steam. By installing co-generation systems, the sugar industry now produces Electricity far in excess of their captive requirement & sells the surplus power to the grid. Mill wet bagasse contains about 50% moisture. The calorific value of mill wet bagasse is 2280 kcal/kg. Use of driers to reduce the moisture content in bagasse before it is burnt, is regarded as a simple energy conservation measure. This bagasse drying system can also use the waste heat from the boiler flue gases for its partial heat requirement.
