The Energy Cane Alternative (SUGAR SERIES) by Alex Getchell Alexander (Author) ISBN The energy cane alternative book Alex Getchell Alexander. see more details management away from a sweetener-orientated enterprise towards the energy cane alternative. The subject matter of the book is arranged in four parts (and 16 chapters) as follows: Introduction (1.

Tropical biomass - a resource for all seasons); Part I. Sugar planting vs. energy planting (2. Sugar planting at a crossroads; and 3. The biomass planting alternative); Part II. Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {The energy cane alternative}, author = {Alexander, A.G.}, abstractNote = {This book reviews the conceptual and theoretical background of Saccharum botany, which underlies the growing of cane as a total growth commodity.

Elsevier Science Publishers, Amsterdam, xx + pp. ISBN The energy cane can be understood as the cane that provides greater lignocellulosic biomass, with the total utilization of the plant (stalks, leaves, and straw), and thus raise the ethanol production through hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass, increase electric energy generation, in addition to optimizing the production of other fiber.

Among the fibrous plants, SUGAR CANE or, better, ENERGY CANE has one of the biggest potential for biomass productions. Results from several breeding programs has showing the high biomass potential of energy cane over other biomass crops like.

Arranged in five parts―Green Gas, Sun, Wind, Earth, and Water―Renewable tells the stories of the most interesting and promising types of renewable energy: namely, biofuel, solar, wind, geothermal, and hydropower.

But unlike many books about alternative energy, Renewable is not obsessed with megawatts and tips for building home solar panels. Please no books on healing (not that kind of energy!) Please no books on conservation unless they highlight renewables Please no books on sustainability unless it profiles renewable energy types.

In this book chapter, the authors discuss the role of sugarcane as a renewable resource for sustainable development. Alexander, The Energy Cane Alternative, Elsevier, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, T. Tew and R.

The book explores sugarcane's 40 year history as a fuel for cars, along with its impressive leaps in production and productivity that have created a robust global market.

In addition, new prospects for the future are discussed as promising applications in agroenergy, whether for biofuels or bioelectricity, or for bagasse pellets as an alternative to firewood for home heating purposes are explored.

This book analyzes the significance, applications, achievements, and future avenues of biofuels and bioenergy production from sugarcane, in top cane growing countries around the globe.

Moreover, we also evaluate the barriers and areas of improvement for targeting efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective biofuels from sugarcane to meet the world’s energy needs and combat the climate change. There are many different forms in which alternative energy or green energy is available.

One of these is solar power. Solar power is driven by photovoltaic cells, and these are progressively getting less expensive and more advanced. Solar energy power can be. The book explains all the big categories of energy usage with great clarity and he explains what can be done to reduce usage in all of these areas.

In Europe, for example, people use Kwh per day per person, including 40Kwh for transportation, 40Kwh for heating and cooling, and 45Khw to generate the 18Kwh of electricity they use each day.

Diversification of sugarcane to alternative farm crops is indicated in some instances. Yet, for the most part, the more logical alternative is an internal diversification to a. There are many reasons the world is looking for alternative energy sources in an effort to reduce pollutants and greenhouse gases.

Alternative or renewable energy sources show significant promise in helping to reduce the number of toxins that are by-products of energy use and help preserve many of the natural resources that we currently use as sources of energy.

However, with the first 30 pages in the book it is nothing more than a book written by Al Gore and all the left wing agendas that go with that. Chapters titled "Energy Addicts" and "Nuclear Power A Failed Promise" do not belong in a book that is supposed to be introducing the subject of alternative s: 2.

Innovative breeds of sugar cane yield up to times as much organic matter as conventional breeds, resulting in a great potential for biogas production. The use of biogas production as a complementary solution to conventional and second-generation ethanol production in Brazil may increase the energy produced per hectare in the sugarcane sector.

Energy is often referred to as digestible energy, net energy for maintenance (NEm), net energy for gain (NEg), net energy for lactation (NEl), and total digestible nutrients (TDN). On forage and feed quality analysis test results, digestible energy in Mississippi beef cattle diets is.

In ethanol from sugar cane production, the leftover bagasse (the fibre part of the sugar cane) can be burned in a biomass power station to produce electricity.
