As a follow up to the previous presentation Growing Energy by Mr. Armstrong, below is the presentation from Mr. Straughn giving details about the planned power plant for the energy generation.
Importing fuel and food are two major drains on foreign exchange reserves for Barbados.
If only there was a way to support local food production and reduce our fuel imports.
Fortunately there is! Mr. Richard Archer of Armag Farms, gave a presentation, at the Annual technical conference of the BSTA, on using high fibre cane and king grass to produce bioenergy.
By using high fiber cane and king grass it is possible to maintain the traditional crop rotation that preserves Barbadian soils for the production of root and vegetable crops.
