Title

Ethanol Production from Sweet Sorghum

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the sugar content of different sweet sorghum cultivars at different harvest times and also determine the cultivar that will produce the highest ethanol yield at optimized fermentation conditions. Four sweet sorghum cultivars, Honey green and Sugar graze were harvested at 3 and 6 months and the juice were extracted from the stems. The juice was used for ethanol production and the effect of pH, yeast concentration dilution factor and the addition of a nitrogen source on the ethanol yield were investigated. The results showed that the cultivar contained the highest sugar content at 3 months. A maximum ethanol yield (0.48g.g-1) was observed at a pH of 4.5, a yeast concentration of 3 wt%, a dilution rate of 1:1 and when ammonium sulphate was added to the fermentation broth as nitrogen source. Glycerol yield formed as a by-product during fermentation and at a maximum ethanol yield was 0.05 g.g-1.
