Cogeneration operations can be improved by reducing moisture content at milling and also later using dryer with flue gases. Energy generation with sugarcane bagasse and trash has the potential to supply a substantial amount of electricity. However, this potential has not been fully developed. There is the need to develop the necessary technology (strategy and equipment) to implement trash recovery and its use as supplementary fuel to bagasse at sugarcane mills, at attractive cost and without hindering mill operations. If this can be done, it will be possible to produce electric energy around the year, selling guaranteed electricity on a profitable basis to end consumers.
