Research Project: CHARACTERIZATION AND IMPROVEMENT OF SUGARCANE AND SUGARBEET PROCESS UNITS

Location: Commodity Utilization Research

Project Number: 6435-41000-103-05
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2008
End Date: Sep 30, 2011

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
