CHARACTERIZATION AND IMPROVEMENT OF SUGARCANE AND SUGARBEET PROCESS UNITS
Project Number: 6435-41000-103-05
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Aug 01, 2008
End Date: Sep 30, 2011
Determine the physico-chemical properties from sugarcane varieties subjected to new harvesting practices. Examine the use of innovative compounds, including polyaluminium compounds, to improve clarification of sugarcane and sugarbeet juices.
Participate in sugarcane variety trash trials to characterize the physico-chemical quality and processing ability of different components of green sugarcane trash. Undertake industrial studies to find improvements in clarification processing problems.
