Commercial scale ClearFuels-Rentech bio-refineries are anticipated to be designed with the flexibility to produce both renewable synthetic diesel and jet fuels from multiple clean biomass feedstocks including bark, sawdust, woodchips, sugarcane bagasse, cane trash
, corn stover and mixtures of clean biomass.
Within the Australian sugar industry, there has been a progressive move away from the burning of sugarcane before harvest to green cane trash
blanketing (GCTB), where crop residues after harvesting are left on the soil surface as a mulch.
Our biofuel refinery design integrates efficient production of cellulosic ethanol from bagasse and cane trash
with existing sugar mill and sugar fermentation facilities.
Soil samples were collected in 1995 from the long-term green cane trash
blanket trial which is being conducted on a Typic Tropaquept soil at the Tully Experiment Station, Queensland.
