Press release Summary What this report finds: The teacher pay penalty is bigger than ever. This erosion of relative teacher wages has fallen more heavily on experienced teachers than on entry-level teachers. Importantly, collective bargaining can help to abate this teacher wage penalty.
Ethanol yield has grown 3. Further improvements on best practices are expected to allow in the short to mid-term an average ethanol productivity of 9, liters per hectare.
There are 15 additional plants dedicated exclusively to sugar production. In there wereworkers employed by these industries, and as ethanol production expanded, by there wereworkers employed in the sugarcane cultivation and industrialization, includingworkers in the sugarcane fields,workers in the sugar mills, andworkers in the ethanol distilleries.
They include the economic crisis of ; poor sugarcane harvests due to unfavorable weather; high sugar prices in the world market that made more attractive to produce sugar rather than ethanol;    a freeze imposed by the Brazilian government on the petrol and diesel prices.
By a total of 41 ethanol plants out of about have closed and the sugar-cane crop yields dropped from tonnes per hectare in to 69 tonnes per hectare in Evolution of the ethanol productivity per hectare of sugarcane planted in Brazil between and Variation of ethanol prices to producers in reflecting the harvest season supply.
A key aspect for the development of the ethanol industry in Brazil was the investment in agricultural research and development by both the public and private sector.
The increase of the index total recoverable sugar TRS from sugarcane has been very significant, 1. The average annual improvement was 0. Four research programs, two private and two public, are devoted to further genetic improvement.
Identification of 40, cane genes was completed in and there are a couple dozen research groups working on the functional genomestill on the experimental phase, but commercial results are expected within five years.
This advance combined with an expected 6.
Most of the industrial processing of sugarcane in Brazil is done through a very integrated production chain, allowing sugar production, industrial ethanol processing, and electricity generation from byproducts. Milling and refining[ edit ] See also: Sugarcane Once harvested, sugarcane is usually transported to the plant by semi-trailer trucks.
The main objective of the milling process is to extract the largest possible amount of sucrose from the cane, and a secondary but important objective is the production of bagasse with a low moisture content as boiler fuel, as bagasse is burned for electricity generation see belowallowing the plant to be self-sufficient in energy and to generate electricity for the local power grid.
Before evaporationthe juice is filtered once again, producing vinassea fluid rich in organic compounds. The syrup resulting from evaporation is then precipitated by crystallization producing a mixture of clear crystals surrounded by molasses.
A centrifuge is used to separate the sugar from molasses, and the crystals are washed by addition of steam, after which the crystals are dried by an airflow.
Upon cooling, sugar crystallizes out of the syrup. Fermentation, distillation and dehydration[ edit ] See also: Ethanol fermentation and Azeotropic distillation The resulting molasses are treated to become a sterilized molasse free of impurities, ready to be fermented.I have spent quite a bit of time lately thinking about autonomous cars, and I wanted to summarize my current thoughts and predictions.
Most people – experts included – seem to think that the transition to driverless vehicles will come slowly over the coming few decades, and that large hurdles exist for widespread adoption. 🔥Citing and more!
