Light SA (LIGT3), the Brazilian power utility, plans to build a 90 million-real ($39 million) cogeneration plant at a Coca-Cola factory by December.
Light will operate the plant in Rio de Janeiro state for 15 years, Marco Donatelli, director of the company’s energy-efficiency unit Light Esco, said today at a conference in Sao Paulo. The facility will turn natural gas into power, steam, carbon dioxide and nitrogen for soft-drink production, he said. It may include a boiler that will run on wood pellets.
