Sugarcane Biorefinery; Technology and Perspectives; (PDF) offers the reader with a current view of the global scenario of sugarcane biorefinery; beginning a new expectation on this important crop from a sustainability; chemical and energy point-of-view. The ebook explores the existing biorefinery platforms that can be used to change sugarcane to new high value added products. It also addresses one of today’s most debated issues involving energy cane; in addition to the problem “sugar cane vs. food vs. the environment”; adding even more worth in a culture that is already a representation of case study around the world.

Concentrating on the chemical composition of sugarcane; and the production and processes that maximize it for either agricultural or energy use; the ebook is designed to deliver practical insights for current application and motivate the further exploration of options for balancing food and fuel demands.

Features the productive chain of sugarcane and its implications on food production and the environment

  • Provides information on new technologies in the sugar-energy segment
  • Contextualizes and premises for the technological road mapping of energy-cane
  • Presents discussions on the evolution of the sustainable development of the sugar-energy sector


NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Sugarcane Biorefinery; Technology and Perspectives in PDF. No access codes are included.
