Cogeneration Benefits

Cogeneration Electricity Benefits

The existence of cogeneration for the production of electricity in bioethanol production plants generates multiple benefits:

  • High energy efficiency, since the cogeneration process optimizes heat losses.
  • Reduction of emissions associated with heat production.
  • The generated energy has a renewable character, when produced from residual energy.
  • Security in the electrical supply.
  • Distributed generation of electricity.
