Molasses Plant

This plant had some of the most advanced technology that I've seen so far. They process molasses into alcohol and make baker's yeast. They have lots of computers and even do computerized data collection using LabView-type programs.

Waste product. Don't worry, it goes through multiple processes before being released into Lake Victoria. There are several holding ponds before the lake.
