Sugar Mills have a natural advantage of fuel (bagasse)
availability to venture into power generation business. Many of
the sugar mills are already producing power for
self-consumption. Sugar mills in Pakistan are therefore
encouraged and invited to get benefit of their expertise and
venture into the private power business.
Ministry of Water and Power is in the process of approval of the
ECC for an investor friendly and lucrative 'National Policy of
Power Co-Generation (Bagasse / Biomass and Coal) for Sugar
Industry 2013' which would supersede the existing 'National
Policy for Power Co-Generation by Sugar Industry'.
