Canadian firm to develop cogeneration facility in Sudan

A Canadian firm has signed a $650m deal with a Saudi Arabian company to develop a sugar cane biofuel project in Sudan, East Africa.

The Halifax, Nova Scotia-based renewable energy firm, Nova Global Sustainable Energy Ltd. signed a joint venture agreement with Tala Investment Ltd. Sunday at the UN climate talks in Doha, Qatar.
The project involves cultivating 3.6 million tonnes of sugar cane on a 63,000-hectare parcel of land in Sennar state, Sudan’s sugar cane belt.

The sugar cane will be processed into sugar for the local market and used to fuel a cogeneration facility as well as to make ethanol, energy pellets, animal feed, biological fertilizers and biodegradable packaging.
