Description of scenarios for first generation sugarcane facilities evaluated

Memorando técnico Most of the scenarios evaluated using the Virtual Sugarcane Biorefinery platform are compared and/or integrated to first generation sugarcane facilities. These scenarios were defined based on the average Brazilian sugarcane mills and on the trends envisioned for sugar-energy sector. The simulation of an industrial process, within the Virtual Sugarcane Biorefinery platform, is based […]

Surveying the complex polyploid sugarcane genome sequence

Memorando técnico Today there is a lack of publicly available genomics data for sugarcane; availability of such information will eventually strengthen and accelerate breeding programs. This lack of information is partly due to sugarcane’s complex genome structure, which is not amenable to current high-­‐throughput short-­‐read sequencing technologies. Current sugarcane cultivars are interspecific hybrids, with a […]

Components databak for the industrial simulations in the Virtual Sugarcane Biorefinery (VSB)

Memorando Técnico The simulation of an industrial process, within the Virtual Sugarcane Biorefinery platform, is based on mass and energy balances carried out through process simulators, such as Aspen plus, SuperPro and EMSO. Considering the process simulation in ASPEN Plus the inclusion of components present in a sugarcane biorefinery (e.g., first and second generation process) […]

Sugarcane biomass composition for the industrial simulations in the virtual sugarcane biorefinery (VSB)

Memorando Técnico The simulation of an industrial process, within the Virtual Sugarcane Biorefinery platform, is based on mass and energy balances carried out through process simulators, such as Aspen plus, SuperPro and EMSO. Regardless of the simulation environment, the definition of feedstock composition is one of the first steps for process simulation. In this technical […]

Fracionamento por peneiras do bagaço de cana-de-açúcar para obtenção das frações fibra e medula

Memorando Técnico O bagaço de cana-de-açúcar é um material lignocelulósico fibroso resultante do processamento da cana-de-açúcar e constituído por um conjunto heterogêneo de partículas de diversos tamanhos. As frações majoritárias do bagaço de cana são as frações fibra e medula que correspondem, respectivamente, às células fibrilares e às células de parênquima. O fracionamento por peneiras […]

Protocolo aplicado no CTBE para a avaliação do perfil de oligossacarídeos gerados a partir de hidrólise enzimática por eletroforese capilar

Memorando Técnico Em virtude da necessidade de redução da emissão dos gases relacionados ao efeito estufa bem como devido ao aumento da demanda enérgica, o desenvolvimento de fontes de energias renováveis é fundamental para evitar crises de abastecimento energético, que podem comprometer aspectos econômicos e sociais em escala mundial. Os biocombustíveis produzidos a partir da […]

Physical-chemical characterization of sugarcane bagasse

Memorando Técnico The methodology for Physical-Chemical Characterization of Sugarcane Bagasse allows the determination of biomass contents and provides information for understanding the complex structures and chemical compositions of the lignocellulosic materials. Significant progress has been made to use lignocellulosic materials for the production of ethanol and by-products in the biorefinery concept. So improved methods for […]
