By way of a partnership over the past 6 years, Bosch Engenharia has been leading a great project at Biolasa mill, located in Goiás, Brazil.
The physicist, civil engineer and entrepreneur Paulo Gontijo was born in 1932 in Minas Gerais. He is remembered for founding the agribusiness complex LASA in Goiás. Upon his passing in 2002, his legacy was left to his heirs, who have kept their father’s dream alive.
In 2012, when the LASA distillery was going through a rehabilitation process and was crushing 300 000 tons of cane per year, Bosch Engenharia was appointed to operate and maintain the distillery. The objective was to provide industrial efficiency and technology improvements, to augment milling production and ethanol generation. An audacious goal was set at 500 000 tons of cane per year.
Improvements introduced by Bosch Engenharia included triangulation of mills, checking equipment suitability, repairs, fermentation adjustments for a combat system, heat exchangers and evaporator installations.
In achieving the target of 500 000 tons of cane in 2017, the milling production record was broken. Thanks to this success, the group investors now have an even bigger vision – they want to stretch the milling production target to 700 000 tons of cane for 2018, which Bosch Engenharia is already striving for
