Food,Sugar and Biofuel Production by Cultivation of Sweet Sorghum in Tideland Molecular Breeding Research Institute Branch of Biotechnology, State Academy of Sciences, D.P.R.K
Background - Limitation of cultivation area - Advantages of Sweet Sorghum · Accumulation of sugar in stalks · Annual plant in temperate zone
Project objectives Development of salt- tolerant transgenic Sweet Sorghum Building of pilot-plant for extraction of useful materials including sugar. Building of pilot-plant for biofuel production Modernization of analytical, experimental equipments.
Outputs New Sweet Sorghum cultivars which are able to ensure high and stable production in land with 2~3% of salt New strains of microbes with high fermentation activity in our country's conditions The process of pilot scale will be established. to extract various value-added materials including sugar from sweet sorghum to ferment stalk waste to produce biofuel Various techniques will be developed for cultivation of new cultivars of Sweet Sorghum I extraction of useful materials including sugar in industrial scale production of biofuels by fermentation of stalk waste of Sweet Sorghum
Activities -The implementing institute Molecular Breeding Research Institute Branch of Biotechnology, State Academy of Sciences, D.P.R.K - Predicated period from September 2012 to August 2017
Activities -To develop sweet sorghum cultivars with salt tolerance which can be cultivated in tidelands of our country -To enhance the activity of microbes which are harnessed to ferment the wastes of sweet sorghum - To establish the pilot plant for extraction of useful materials including sugar from sweet sorghum stalks and fermentation wastes to produce biofuels. - Project monitoring and evaluation
Expected Budget Equipments, reagents, materials: 150,000USD Training of technical staffs in abroad: 30,000USD Equipments for the pilot plants: 100,000USD Construction of the pilot plants: 20,000USD Total:300000USD
