TITLE: Indian Sugar Power
CDM PROJECT: 0826: Bagasse based Co-generation Power Project at Khatauli
A boy helps himself to a stalk of sugarcane from a truck in northern India. Carbon finance has enabled the installation of hi-tech
equipment at the Khatauli Sugar Factory, which now uses the waste bagasse, the fibre left over after the sugar manufacturing
process, as a fuel to generate clean renewable power. As well as producing approximately 90,000 tonnes of emissions reductions
each year, the project has also led to increased incomes for local farmers who now earn a benefit from what previously waste.
The photo was commissioned by Climate Care, which provided financing for the project.

TITLE: Mount Bagasse
CDM PROJECT: 0043: Lucélia Bagasse Cogeneration Project (LBCP)
This mountain of bagasse, by-product from sugar manufacture, will be burned to generate electricity, displacing fossil-fuel used to
generate electricity. The project is located in a small city, of about 20,000 people, in São Paulo State, Brazil. The project
stimulates the company, Lucélia, to continue improving its business and investing in activities beyond its core business.
Project employees and local people are encouraged to improve their job qualifications in order to operate high tech equipment.
In this regard, the company is an important job creator and helps improve quality of life.
