 en Student article - PRODUCTION OF CRYSTAL SUGAR AND ALCOHOL FROM SWEET SORGHUM
Kangama C. O. and X. Rumei

Abstract

In the semi-arid tropics worldwide, Sweet sorghum is cultivated by farmers on a subsistence level, and consumed as food by humanity. In the context of China, we examine the economic and environmental advantages that transformation of sorghum to ethanol, can give to China. Reducing the use of non-renewable fossil energy reserves together with improving the environment are two important reasons that drive interest in the use of bioethanol as an automotive fuel.
