Diversification alternatives in the sugarcane agribusiness | M1 - OnLine 1.

25 February, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:59 am

During the Event, we will talk about:

During the sessions we will talk about different aspects related to the potential for energy and biochemical use that both cane biomass and its transformation products have, with a view to obtaining value-added products. Some international trends of diversification in the sugarcane production chain will also be addressed, within the framework of biorefineries.

In this event we will address OnLine 1 of Module 1 of the virtual training: Diversification alternatives in the sugarcane agribusiness. (The short title of this training is Diversification.).

Start date and time: 25 Feb 2021 | 10:00 am. Cali, Colombia. (UTC -5)

Duration: 40 minutes (OnLine) 

Addressed to: Personnel from mills in the region, working in the areas of projects, innovation and development, distilleries, steam generation and electrical energy.



Learning objective:

At the end of the virtual training, participants will be able to:

  • Provide attendees with a comprehensive view of the opportunities for energy and biotechnological use of the products and by-products of sugarcane processing.
