Introduction to Cane Sugar Technology Book Excerpt:

Introduction to Cane Sugar Technology provides a concise introduction to sugar technology; more specifically, cane sugar technology up to the production of raw sugar. Being intended originally for use in a post-graduate university course, the book assumes a knowledge of elementary chemical engineering as well as adequate knowledge of chemistry. In the field of sugar manufacture itself, the object of the book is to place more emphasis on aspects which are not adequately covered elsewhere. In accordance with this objective, attention has been concentrated mainly on processes and operation of the factory, and description of equipment is made as brief as possible, with numerous references to other books where more detail is available. The emphasis on operation rather than equipment has also been prompted by observation of quite a few factories in different countries where good equipment is giving less than its proper performance due to inefficient operation and supervision. The book is confined to the raw sugar process, which has been the author's main interest. Refining is discussed only to the extent required to explain refiners' requirements concerning quality of raw sugar.

Cogeneration in the Cane Sugar Industry Book Excerpt:

The cane plant is probably the most efficient utilizer of sun energy for food production, and at the same time provides an equivalent quantity of biomass. The purpose of this book is to set down the unique position of sugar cane in the cogeneration field. Simultaneous with the development of distance-transmission of electricity, sugar cane processors started cogeneration, making use of the cane plant to supply the power for its own processing, and in recent years excess power for export. A broad view of cogeneration in the cane industry, covering the energy available in a crop, the technology of processing for optimum recovery of energy as well as sugar is presented here. The book describes the most practicable processes for recovering energy in the form of process steam and electricity. Cogeneration in the Cane Sugar Industry should be of interest to a broad spectrum, including government agencies, biomass interests, power generators, public utilities as well as sugar producers and technologist.

Management Accounting for the Sugar Cane Industry Book Excerpt:

At a time when sugar cane farms worldwide are suffering from poor profitability, management accounting can provide a set of tools with which to boost revenue and keep costs under control. Management accounting is concerned with the provision of the financial information necessary for managers to plan and control their businesses, with the techniques to be used to produce this information and with its interpretation. Although there are many excellent books on management accounting in general, there are few, if any, that deal specifically with the management of sugar cane farms. The main objectives of this book are: to show how the tools and techniques of management accounting may be applied to the problems of the sugar cane industry; to provide a guide to the interpretation of management accounting information as a prelude to decision-taking; and to warn against the pitfalls of a literal interpretation of such information in an agricultural context. The book assumes no prior knowledge of accounting and contains numerous examples which make it easier to understand the principles and techniques discussed.
