Classifying Hybrids of Energy Cane for Production of Bioethanol and Cogeneration of Biomass-Based Electricity by Principal Component Analysis-Linked Fuzzy C-Means Clustering Algorithm

Abstract: The biggest challenge facing in sugar-energy plants is to move towards the biorefinery concept, without threatening the environment and health. Energy cane is the state-of-the-art of smart energy crops to provide suitable whole-raw material to produce upgraded biofuels, dehydrated alcohol for transportation, refined sugar, yeast-fermented alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, silage and high-quality fodder, as well as to cogenerate heat and bioelectricity from burnt lignocellulose. We, accordingly, present fuzzy c… Show more

“…In the present work, the CanaSoft model was expanded and employed including EC and eucalyptus production systems. As the EC production system is not yet consolidated in Brazil, the production parameters are based on the literature and empirical data from the few available field experiments in Brazil [38,[52][53][54]. The key parameters for EC agricultural system are described and compared to CS in Table 1, while Table 2 summarizes the main parameters for eucalyptus production systems.…”

“…However, energy cane is still a new technology and is starting to be adopted on a commercial scale; thus, new varieties are being developed and released recently [23] with a high variation of fiber content and juice compositions [41,42]. The harvest date can also significantly affect the energy cane composition [43].…”

“…Another way to optimize the clustering method is to apply the dimension reduction method [19]. The dimension reduction method can reduce data dimension but still maintain data characteristics [20].…”
