Cassava alcohol plant in Ghana
Logichem successfully commissioned its first cassava-based Extra Neutral Alcohol (ENA) distillery in Ghana in July 2016.
The 10 kl/d distillery is located on a cassava farm in the Volta region, and processes 60 t/day fresh cassava tubers. The project included CO2 collection from the Fermenters, and purification to beverage-grade liquid CO2.
It was a complete turnkey project, involving site clearing and earthworks, civil construction, and supply, erection and commissioning of all process equipment and utilities. Maximum prefabrication of piping and trial assembly was carried out in South Africa to limited site fabrication as far as possible. Eleven containers and a flat-rack for the boiler were required to ship the equipment to site.
The plant is the first cassava-based ethanol production plant in Ghana. Here is a link for more information:
