Scoping studies for an integrative digital platform for sustainable sugarcane crop management (CaneMAPPS)

This project will assess what is required to develop the digital platform CaneMAPPS - Cane Mapping and Analysis for Productivity, Profitability and Sustainability - to ensure that it enables integration and development of industry best practice, and that it uses the most efficient, cost-effective and current technologies available.

CaneMAPPS will provide a central platform for farm data collection, processing and reporting of everything from crop management to whole farm analysis and industry performance, to encourage growers to embrace industry best management and sustainable practices and ensure compliance with government regulations.

Evaluate the operational performance and industry application for the final evaporator design at Victoria Mill

This project will analyse the performance of a new SRI Robert evaporator installed at one of Australia's largest sugar mills, Victoria Mill in North Queensland. Designed by the Sugar Research Institute, the Robert evaporator removes water and non-condensable gasses from the sugar juice, to yield high quality sugar crystals.

Sugar

Project B Green

This project seeks to prove the science and economics of a proposed biorefinery in the Burdekin sugarcane region of Australia, that would convert sugarcane juice to glycols and biomass to energy (syngas and hydrogen). Global research into biorefineries has escalated in recent years, as businesses transition to renewable and sustainable feedstocks and reduce reliance on petrochemicals.

Use of a purge sensor to improve performance and reduce the need for supervision of batch centrifugals

Batch centrifugals that operate like a spinning washing machine are used widely to separate raw sugar crystals from the mother molasses. This project will trial a Danish-made sensor to show when and how long to add wash water to the batch centrifugal, to purify the raw sugar crystals - a job that is usually done by a worker at the sugar mill.
