Book reviews 15 5 The Energy Cane Alternative. Elsevier Science Publishers, Amsterdam, ISBN Handbook of Cane Sugar Engineering. Third completely revised edition. Together they cover the complete range of sugar cane growing, harvesting and processing.
However, they differ significantly in approach and attitude towards the particular areas dealt with. The Handbook is a completely revised version of the classic cane processing textbook full of solid reliable information which has stood the test of time, updated to allow for more recent developments. In contrast, the Energy cane alternative is very much the personal view, or indeed the original concept, of the author. Many will argue with the ideas expressed, and the concept has yet to be proven.
Under the right conditions sugar cane will, as a C-4 plant, show high levels of productivity which have been adapted in conventional breeding for sugar production to yield high purity juice from a plant with low fibre content. Sugar is produced by pressing the cane in a roller mill, clarifying the juice and recovering the raw sugar by crystallization.
Process steam and electricity are produced by combustion of the fibrous remains of the stem bagasse and surplus electricity may be fed to an external grid. Over the last hundred years or so the technology of sugar extraction and purification has evolved to become a very exact science.
The importance as far as biomass is concerned lies in part with the increased interest in the production of fuel alcohol from sugar cane of conventional type and in part with its value in assessing exactly what can be done with the new breed of high fibre cane, termed energy cane by Alexander. The production of high fibre cane depends both on breeding and on field management, with the objective of optimization for total biomass, rather than sucrose yield or juice purity.
The high fibre cane can then be used as a boiler fuel. However, the opportunities and practicalities are, as Book reviews is so often the case with new biomass energy concepts, based on a specific region linked with a particular set of economic, political and social circumstances. In this case the area is Puerto Rico and the scenario the declining cane based sugar industry.
T h e Energy cane alternative represents the efforts and opinions of one man who has shown that high yields of high-fibre cane can be produced in the field. Whether such cane really has a significant place in either the energy or money based economics of the tropical nations has yet to be established.
In the meantime the combination of the two volumes will be invaluable reading for anyone approaching the use of cane as an energy crop for the first time, whilst the Handbook, at least, will continue as one of the major works of reference for the sugar miller. Twidell, I. Lewis eds. Pergamon Press, Oxford, ISBN 0. Kristoferson and V. Price: S These two volumes deal with all the major renewable energy technologies, including aspects of biomass production and use.
They are similar in that they are directed towards rural use, with an emphasis on the developing countries. Energy for rural and island communities is the proceedings of the fourth conference on the subject which attracted delegates from 30 countries in September

The book covers very completely all the equipment required in the factory producing raw cane sugar. Harry Potter Years by J. A substantial portion of the book deals with the milling gy cane. The metric system has been used throughout the book, but because many factories still use the Handvook units, all measures, formulae and tables and nearly all calculations have been given in both systems. The book is more than worth the price. It would seem impossible to find any detail of this operation that has been overlooked This new edition has been extensively revised. Detailed additions have been made to chapters dealing with recently developed bg.

The metric system has been used throughout the book, but because many factories still use the British units, all measures, formulae and tables and nearly all calculations have been given in both systems. Unique in the extent and wngineering of its hugoy, the book has for many years provided the only complete description of cane sugar manufacture, mills, diffusers, boilers and other factory machinery, calculation methods of capacity for every piece of equipment, and process and manufacturing techniques.
