The industrial production of biofuels, understood as fuels produced from biological feedstock, is presently at what can be called a technological crossroad, and a hard competition among different technologies is in course. The winners will be defined by a combination of economical criteria, process robustness and compliance to environmental and sustainability restrictions. In this scena...

Great efforts are being made towards energetic optimization of bioethanol production process in Brazil seeking to improve its sustainability and productivity. In this context, the anaerobic digestion of vinasse, the most abundant effluent from a sugarcane distillery, appears as a possibility. Through this process it is possible to combine the energy recovery from biogas in the same time...
Nowadays a major challenge to the energy industry is to produce biofuels in an economical, efficient and sustainable way to compete in the market. In the bioethanol production process from sugarcane, large amounts of by-products are generated. Among them, the vinasse is the most abundant. The anaerobic digestion (AD) of vinasse is an interesting alternative to improve the productivity a...
