The article asserts that the sugar cane ethanol production of Australia could match grain production. The research released by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food indicated the concept of producing ethanol from molasses associated with sugar production. Minister for Agriculture and Food Kim Chance explained that the goal of the research was to find alternative sources for ethanol production to match demand in Asia. A state government taskforce is expected to benefit from the study.

    Sugar beet molasses (SBM) is a by-product of sugar refining. SBM should be added in animal feed for ruminants for supplying the rumen with rapidly fermentable energy in the form of sugars, and in feed for non-ruminants as a concentrated energy source. Technological limitations of addition of...
