PERFORMANCE TRIALS ON A DEMONSTRATION FARM- SCALE FUEL- ETHANOL PLANT

Studies of the feasibility of farm- based fuel- ethanol production are proceeding at the New South Wales Department of Agriculture's demonstraiton plant at Glenfield. Efforts are being made to correct control problems in the distillation section particularly to overcome temperature instability which is reducing the overall efficiency of distillation. Work has started on developing techniques for the fermentation of sweet sorghum for farm- based fuel- ethanol plants. The paper is No. 83008. (TRRL)
