Zamfara state (Production) sorgum/bioethanol

Sweet sorghum stalks obtained from local market in Zamfara State were evaluated for bioethanol production. The process is considered to be economically feasible considering the percentage yield of sweet sorghum juice obtained from the stalks which was eventually converted to bio-ethanol through fermentation and distillation. The bio-ethanol obtained in the process was analyzed and the properties are compared with the standard specifications set by Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON). Most of the parameters were found to be in conformity with the standard
