Mauritian investors to build sugarcane biorefinery complex in Rwanda

August 8, 2016 |

In Rwanda, Mauritian investors are preparing to build a 100,000 metric ton per year sugar mill that will also produce ethanol from molasses and electricity from bagasse. The project is still being defined but the investment is expected to be between $200 million and $300 million. Currently the country only produces 10,000 tons of sugar annually compared to consumption of 160,000 tons estimated by 2020 that will cost the country $150 million per year to import.
