    • Ethanol production from sweet sorghum 

      Mutepe, Rendani Daphney (North-West University, 2012)
      The use of fossil fuels contributes to global warming and there is a consequent need to resort to clean and renewable fuels. The major concerns with using agricultural crops for the production of energy are food and water ...
    • Fermentation coupled with pervaporation : a kinetic study 

      Meintjes, Maria Magdalena (North-West University, 2011)
      Ethanol production through biomass fermentation is one of the major technologies available to produce liquid fuel from renewable energy sources. A major problem associated with the production of ethanol through fermentation ...
    • Optimization of maize starch fermentation by Saccharomyces cerevisiae using pervaporation 

      Nongauza, Sinethemba Aubrey (North-West University, 2010)
      Due to the depletion of petroleum reserves and environmental concerns, bioethanol has been identified as an alternative fuel to petrol. Bioethanol is a fuel of bio-origin derived from renewable biomass. Starch and sugar ...
    • Production of ethanol from tropical sugar beet 

      Brandling, Janine Ellen (North-West University, 2010)
      The concern over depleting fossil fuel resources and increasing greenhouse gas emissions has prompted the research into alternative and renewable energy resources. Bioethanol is seen as a potential alternative to petroleum fuels ...
