Title (EN) ORGANOSOLV BIOREFINING OF WHOLE SUGAR CANE
(FR) BIORAFFINAGE PAR LE PROCÉDÉ ORGANOSOLV DE LA CANNE À SUCRE ENTIÈRE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for processing sugar cane to concurrently produce sugar from cane juice, and ethanol and other co-products from bagasse. The apparatus comprises equipment for separating a cane juice stream and a fibrous bagasse from a sugar cane feedstock, equipment for refining the cane juice, equipment for processing the fibrous bagasse for recovery therefrom of a cellulosic pulp and a liquor stream, equipment for saccharifϊcation and fermentation of the cellulosic pulp to produce a fermentation beer therefrom, and equipment for recovery of an ethanol stream from the fermentation beer. Legacy sugar mills may be retrofitted with a bagasse biorefining apparatus to concurrently produce ethanol and co-products, with existing cane juice extraction and processing operations.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de traitement de la canne à sucre afin de produire simultanément du sucre à partir du jus de canne, et de l'éthanol et d'autres co-produits à partir de la bagasse. L'appareil comprend un équipement destiné à séparer un courant de jus de canne et une bagasse fibreuse à partir d'une charge de canne à sucre, un équipement destiné à raffiner le jus de canne, un équipement destiné à traiter la bagasse fibreuse pour récupérer à partir de celle-ci une pulpe cellulosique ainsi qu'un courant de liqueur, un équipement destiné à saccharifier et à faire fermenter la pulpe cellulosique afin de produire une bière fermentée à partir de celle-ci, et un équipement destiné à récupérer un courant d'éthanol à partir de la bière fermentée. Les moulins à sucre existants peuvent être rééquipés avec un appareil de bioraffinage de la bagasse afin de produire simultanément de l'éthanol et des co-produits, conjointement à des opérations existantes de traitement et d'extraction du jus de canne.
