David Blume Presents Options for Converting Waste Sugars to Profit Centers Including Replacement Fuels at USDA’s ASCPC Conference in New Orleans LA March 15 – 18, 2016

Conference Provides Insight into Advances in Sugar Crop Processing and Conversion for New Revenue Opportunities

SANTA CRUZ, Calif.--()--Blume Distillation LLC, the leading provider of appropriate-scale Biorefinery-based waste-to-profit production equipment, announced today its participation in United States Department of Agriculture/Agriculture Research Services’ (USDA/ARS) Advances in Sugar Crop Processing and Conversion (ASCPC) Conference, taking place March 15 – 18 in New Orleans, LA.

“I will be presenting ideas and solutions for converting simple sugar waste into new profit opportunities. My talk focuses on our ability to produce profitable alcohol-based end and co-products including soil amendments and liquid replacement fuels from locally available Ag waste resources.”

The ASCPC conference covers a diverse range of research areas including: Sugarcane, Sweet Sorghum, Sugar/Energy Beets, Processing, Conversion, Analysis, Industrial Sugar Production as well as Bio-production of Fuels and Chemicals.

According to Dr. Gillian Eggleston Commodity Utilization Research, Research Chemist at USDA/ARS, “At USDA/ARS we are applying principles of biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry and chemical engineering to create industrial adsorbents, soil amendments, chemicals, and fuels from sugar crop juice, sugar crop processing by-products, and even manure. The ASCPC conference provides an ideal forum for our keynote talks and presentations from Industry innovators such as Blume Distillation’s CEO and biofuel expert, Mr. David Blume. His talk on (Converting Simple Sugar Waste to Profits) helps flesh out the logic in looking for ways to optimize our processes and materials.”

The goal of the ASCPC conference is to improve the quality and use of agricultural sugar commodities and the sustainability of these industries by providing a platform for stakeholders and industry leaders to liaise directly with USDA-ARS and other technical leaders, and to report research and recent developments that benefit the sugarcane, sweet sorghum, sugar beet, and energy beets industries.

“There are a number of factors including climate change conditions and sagging Ag profits that are drawing global attention to the need for improving and optimizing methods and solutions for transforming agricultural surpluses and waste into high-use and better return products,” said biological waste to fuel expert David Blume, founder and CEO of Blume Distillation. “I will be presenting ideas and solutions for converting simple sugar waste into new profit opportunities. My talk focuses on our ability to produce profitable alcohol-based end and co-products including soil amendments and liquid replacement fuels from locally available Ag waste resources.”

Alcohol fuel (bioethanol) helps satisfy the growing worldwide energy demand while helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions and is becoming a core resource under review by governmental and private enterprise interests globally. According to Blume, “Blume Distillation is engaged in a number of waste-to-fuel projects in the US, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and other emerging markets. We are designing solutions for projects that require appropriate-scale biological waste remediation. Using our unique technology and proven processes, we are able to convert waste resources, such as simple sugar, into renewable, pollution-free alcohol fuel, organic fertilizers and high-protein animal feed.”

The USDA/ARS Advances in Sugar Crop Processing and Conversion (ASCPC) Conference is being held at Le Pavillon Hotel 833 Poydras St New Orleans, Louisiana 70112, United States +01 (800) 535-9095. ASCPC opens Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 4:00 PM CT and runs through Friday, March 18, 2016 - 6:30 PM (Central Time).
