Sweet Sorghum Complementing Ethanol Production in Sugar Mills

To help the Indian government achieve the national ethanol blending targets of 20% by 2017, private sugar mills and the public sector research institutes are collaborating with ICRISAT to identify and test sweet sorghum varieties suitable for ethanol production. A total of seven sugar mills are associated with ICRISAT in this 3-year project. Editor's comment:…Read more Sweet Sorghum Complementing Ethanol Production in Sugar Mills

"4 Platforms: Sugarcane/Sorghum, Ag.-Residues, Cellulosic/Pulp and Bio-digestion" Introduction Most biorefineries define "the purpose of pretreatment is to destroy the structure of cellulosic biomass plant cell walls and make cellulose more accessible to the subsequent process"[1]. A variety of schemes have been developed, but none of them specifically targets the recovery of the hemicelluose (and the…Read more Paid4PreTreatment™
