DESCRIPTION

Project InformationAssessment of Potential Renewable Biomass Feedstock to Supplement Bagasse for Cogeneration in the Sugar Cane Industry

The present study should contribute to the long term energy and rural development objectives of the country by providing a framework for the development of biomass energy in Jamaica.

The exploitation of bagasse fuelled cogeneration and other renewable feedstock as supplemental fuel, will largely contribute to the improvement of the competitiveness of the sugar industry, creating new employment opportunity in sugar dependent areas, as well as in achieving long term environmental sustainability and energy security of the Country.

Specific objective(s) of the present initiative:

To assess the potential for supplemental biomass feedstock to cogeneration on sugar cane bagasse in Jamaica, to allow for all-year operations;

Design a programme for the development of biomass energy in Jamaica.

Recommend a strategy to show how year round cogeneration could be implemented economically fairly quickly in the short term to cover the next two to five years while long term optimal feedstock trial are being developed.

Requested Services:

Review of policies and relevant existing literature in the field of biofuels and biomass development in Jamaica.

Make a preliminary assessment of available biomass resources, in terms of waste and byproducts that could be used as supplemental fuels in sugar mills/cogeneration plants.

Identify potential energy crops that could be suitable for off-season sugar mill operations/cogeneration plants.

Look at the various technological options including harvesting, handling, storage transport and cogeneration of the various energy crops/feedstock.

Make a preliminary economic analysis including market, delivered cost for the feedstock in a usable form for the Cogeneration plan (include the cost for storage), financial considerations as well as environmental and employment benefits.

Collect Key data and other information in order to evaluate the technical and economical feasibility of possible biomass projects. These data will have to include also the potential of these biomass feedstock from an energy point of view such as energy content, moisture levels, seasonality and the costs for possible processing/storage of the biomass before it can be utilised for energy.

Identify and assess the capacity of potential institutions involved in the R&D of biomass energy.

Identify interim solutions while long term best alternatives are being implemented.

Engage the private sector (newly privatized sugar Estates), Research Institutions (SIRI), Government Institutions (MoA, MEM, NEPA etc) in a common platform for the Development of Biomass Energy, and Trade and Farmers Unions.

Design a preliminary pilot R&D programme for testing and developing suitable energy crops in Jamaica

Organize a workshop to present the findings of the study and get feedbacks from the major stakeholders.
