Farleigh Sugar Mill

For every 10 tonnes of sugarcane crushed, a sugar mill produces nearly 3 metric tonnes of wet bagasse, the fibrous material left over after juice is extracted from sugarcane. When burned by a sugar mill, this usually produces more than enough electricity to power all of the mill’s operations.

Mackay Sugar Limited's Farleigh Sugar Mill generates 13 MW of electricity from boilers primarily designed to incinerate bagasse.
