Sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) is a drought tolerant energy crop, identified as a possible bioethanol feedstock. Its cultivation is simple and economic, and it could be an alternative in regions where growth of starch¬rich crops is not favorable. The aim of this study was to assess the potential productions of methane of by¬products obtained from bioethanol production from sweet sorghum, in order to improve overall energy recovery. Biochemical Methane Potential (BMP) batch tests...
