Established South (and Central) American sugar mills are faced with growth limitations due to land unavailability (or the available land is expensive), but have an abundance of biomass available to further grow their business.

Our starting point was a sugar mill with ethanol production and electricity generation that wished to evaluate the business impact an integrated furfural production will have on their current operation.
