Inkerman 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.

The Inkerman Sugar Mill, near Ayr south of Townsville, operated by Sucrgen (formerly CSR), generates 10 MW of electricity from bagasse. Up to 2 MW is exported to the grid.

Start Year: 1963 (with 2MW capacity); 10MW added in 1976
