An integrated Organic Agro-Industrial Complex produces electricity, bio-diesel, syrup, BioChar, animal food pellets, soybeans, an organic fertilizer alfalfa & sweet sorghum hays.
Organic Agro-Industrial Key Project Features
- All products will be “ORGANIC”
- The waste from a process becomes feedstock for another- ash from diesel and gasification plants will be mixed with bagasse and composted.
- Sustainable agriculture practices are used.
- All technologies used have been in commercial operations for many years – no R&D technology is used.
- Provides year round permanent well paying jobs to the local and indigenous peoples.
Organic Agro-Industrial Syrup Plant
- Sweet sorghum will be grown to provide the sugar juice for the syrup production.
- Pan type evaporators will be used
- The bagasse is used to make animal food products
- The markets for syrup are: a.The local & international alcohol industry b.Bio-plastic industry c.Food industry – baking, pastry d.Yeast industry
Sweet Sorghum for Organic Farming
Sweet sorghum is any of the many varieties of the sorghum grass whose stalks have a high sugar content. Sweet sorghum thrives better under drier and warmer conditions than many other crops and is grown primarily for forage, silage, and syrup production.
Sweet sorghum syrup is known as “sorghum molasses” in some regions of the United States, though in most of the U.S. the term molasses refers to a sweet syrupy byproduct of sugarcane or sugar beet sugar extraction
By the early 1900s, the U.S. produced 20 million US gallons (76,000 m3) of sweet sorghum syrup annually. Making syrup from sorghum (as from sugar cane) is heavily labor-intensive. Following World War II, with the declining availability of farm labor, sorghum syrup production fell drastically. Currently, less than 1 million US gallons (3,800 m3) are produced annually in the U.S.
In Central India it was introduced in the early 1970s by Nimbkar Agricultural Research Institute. Presently it is grown on large area as a fodder crop.
Most sorghum grown for syrup production is grown in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
Future Products Potential
- More bio-electric energy production
- Potable alcohol, Butanol, Ethanol
- Drinking alcohols – Vodka, SS Rum, Bourbon
- More animal food products
- Cooking fuel briquettes and pellets
- Kluyveromyces Yeasts from syrup or SS juice
- Organic Fertilizers from sweet sorghum sugars
- BioChar from biomass & pyrolisis plant
- Dry Ice from ethanol plant CO2 fermentation
- Food grade CO2 from ethanol plant fermentation
- Food organic grade Red Dye from sweet sorghum leaves
