The Cellulosic Sugar Producers Co-operative Looks To Turn Farm Waste Into Sugar

Cellulosic Sugar Producers' Co-operative to meet in Varna Ontario this week, looking for producers.


The Cellulosic Sugar Producers' Co-operative (CSPC) is looking to recruit members among Huron County corn and wheat producers, whose crop waste can be converted into sugar.


The CSPC will talk about how farmers could profit from the process at a meeting in Varna this Friday.


The process involves recovering corn leaves and stalks, as well as wheat straw that normally would be discarded after harvest.


Demonstrations using equipment to harvest the excess biomass were held on farms in Warwick and Bothwell in November, and the Co-operative is actively recruiting supplier members.


A processing plant is planned by the co-operative and Comet Biorefining to be built in Sarnia Ontario.


The CSPC meeting will be held at Hill and Hill Farms on Mill Road in Varna, Friday from 1:30pm till 3pm.
