Therefore, it is suggested to plant sweet sorghum for biofule production in hot and dry countries to solve problems such as increasing the octane of gasoline and to reduce greenhouse gases and … GT-3 and GT-7) hybrids of energy sorghum [Sorghum … One of the main challenges is that the sugar has to be fermented immediately. This study aimed to compare industrial processing of genotype sorghum CVSW80007 and the cultivar sugar cane 'RB966928' for bioethanol production in early season. Current ethanol production based on corn, starch and sugar substances may not be desirable due to their food and feed value. In batch fermentation, kinetic parameters for ethanol production depended on initial cell and sugar concentrations. (2)Centre for … Sweet sorghum juice supplemented with 0.5% ammonium sulphate was used as a substrate for ethanol production by Saccharomyces cerevisiae TISTR 5048. Future area requirement for sweet sorghum cultivation to meet a small proportion of mandated blending requirements if sweet sorghum is … Home; About Journals. yrvlm.chidepudi@gmail.com. for sweet sorghum and ramp product adoption.” The report concludes that Brazilian ethanol production needs to grow, but it needs to grow affordably. Mutepe, S Marx, P van der Gryp Focus area: Energy Systems, Associate Chair: Bio fuels and Other Clean alternative fuels, School of Chemical and Minerals Engineering, North-West University (Potchefstroom Campus), Introduction Due to the diminishing fossil fuel reserves, alternative energy sources need to be renewable, sustainable, efficient, cost-effective, and safe [1]. Abstract: Sweet sorghum stalks were used as a low cost carrier for immobilization of Saccharomyces cerevisiae NP 01 to produce ethanol from sweet sorghum juice. Sweet sorghum has been evaluated for biofuel feedstock potential since the 1980s because of its capability of producing sugar‐enriched juice and high biomass yields. Lavudi S(1)(2), Oberoi HS(3)(4), Mangamoori LN(5). Author information: (1)ICAR-Central Institute of Post Harvest Engineering and Technology, Ludhiana, India. Sweet sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a potential feedstock for ethanol production in many regions of the world.The objective of this study was to compare sweet sorghum cultivars with maize (Zea mays L.) as alternatives for ethanol production in the northern Corn Belt.Thirteen sweet sorghum cultivars were … Browse by Title Browse by Subject Journal Indexing. Sweet sorghum juice was concentrated by membrane separation process. Introduction. Sweet sorghum Ethanol Solid state fermentation 1. However, this crop may someday have another use in the Commonwealth — as a bioenergy crop. The optimum initial cell and sugar concentrations in … Economics of ethanol production from sweet sorghum under CU. Acknowledgement to Reviewers 2019 … However, large-scale planting on marginal lands would require improved varieties with optimized biofuel-related traits and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses. Information for Authors/Reviewers. From its stalks, a juice can be obtained, which contains high content of fermentable sugars that can be directly converted into ethanol, whereas the cellulose and hemicellulose rich bagasse needs to be pretreated before being fermented to ethanol. Ethanol production from sweet sorghum R.D. A total of seven sugar mills are associated with ICRISAT in this 3-year … As found in this study, an ALM with dimensions of 20 × 20 × 5 mm 3 is effective for cell immobilization due … Ethanol production from sweet sorghum juice by Saccharomyces cerevisiae NP01 was investigated under very high gravity (VHG) fermentation and various carbon adjuncts and nitrogen sources.
