This paper aims to highlight the usefulness of molasses from sugarcane as raw material for the production of food products. The main goal is to establish the conceptual design and the simulation of a sugarcane biorefinery in terms of process flowsheet diagrams. However, a fundamental issue is the decision of the bioproducts of the biorefinery and their percentage of production in relation to the total amount of sugar extracted by the juice and bagasse from...
