Sugar cane waste to power coal plants

Brazil Pellet has developed a way to process bagasse, the waste from sugar cane processing into pellets for use in coal plants. They are thinking very big, like 520,000 tons of pellets a year that would produce 2,420 GW of power.

Most bagasse now is dumped where it decomposes and produces methane. Burning it instead of coal gives you carbon credits.
