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:
- Extraction / clarification
- Fermentation with standard yeast (batch or continuous)
- Rectification (if applicable)
- Ethanol dehydration (molecular sieve)
- Vinasses treatment
