Factory view of Bukona Agro Processors Ltd

The corporation is exploring the prospects of partnering with the already existent Bukona Agro Processors Ltd factory located in Koch Goma-Nwoya district; to operationalize an ethanol from fresh Cassava processing line that will be operating at an input capacity of 250MT-300 MT/day of fresh cassava to produce approximately 40,500 liters/day of denatured alcohol that will be used for cooking and lighting purposes.

Operationalization of the proposed facility is projected to;

  • realize an annual injection of at least UGX 13.1 billion/year into the local economy, just from the purchase of fresh cassava alone.
  • Create approximately 10,000 employment opportunities (both direct and indirect) associated with the industrialization of the cassava crop into denatured ethanol (e.g. farmers, factory workers, packaging, transportation and distribution channels etc).
  • Contribute to environmental protection (reduced deforestation saving around 1,270 trees per year) as a result of a nationwide gradual shift from the usage of fossil fuels, firewood and charcoal to ethanol cook stoves.
