Instead of burning sugar cane scrap (the traditional method), the scrap will instead be used as fuel to create electricity in Australia.
Sure, it will still be burned and carbon will be emitted. But the burning will be much more efficient and less carbon will escape. Plus, petroleum-based products won’t be used, and just producing and trucking them in has a huge carbon footprint in and of itself.
Using locally produced fuelstock to create electricity looks to be a major coming trend.
