Sugar cane Ethanol

Fermentable carbohydrates from sugar cane may be directly utilised in the form of cane juice or in conjunction with molasses from a sugar factory.

Cane juice is produced either by crushing on mill tandems or through a counter-current diffuser.

Cane processes proposed by DSEC generally include:

  • Preparation
  • Extraction / clarification
  • Evaporation
  • Fermentation with standard yeast (batch or continuous)
  • Distillation
  • Rectification (if applicable)
  • Ethanol dehydration (molecular sieve)
  • Vinasses treatment
