APPLICABILITY OF UNCONVENTIONAL ENERGY RAW MATERIALS IN ETHANOL PRODUCTION
Background. The difficult position of Polish agriculture, including one of its branches, i.e. sugar industry, is conducive of search for solutions aiming at an improvement of the condition of industry. One of the potential solutions in this respect may be to focus on alternative raw materials and search for ways to overcome recession in renewable energy sources. The aim of this work was to evaluate the possibilities of using non-starchy materials – sugar materials, without enzymatic treatment for ethanol production using selected yeast strains.
Keywords: bioethanol, sugar beets, fermentation, thick juice
