MPC Capital to build biomass power plant in Brazil
MPC Capital, a German investment company, is set to construct an 18MW biomass power plant in Brazil.
The plant, which will be fed by rice husk, will be built in the city of Itaqui, Rio Grande do Sul state.
Building is projected to start in 2016 with an investment of BRL208 million (€51.2m).
The Itaqui plant, with an annual processing capacity of 140,000 tonnes of rice husk, is MPC’s second plant of this type in Rio Grande do Sul.
In 2012 the company inaugurated the 12.3MW Sao Borja plant with a processing capacity of 96,000 tonnes.
