The present work intends to evaluate the possibility to produce bioethanol through fermentation of the carob. This sustainable process could revive the economy of rural areas of the Mediterranean basin. In particular in Italy, where you can find the largest cultivation of carob in the world. Italy is the leading producer of carob in the world and yet it is difficult to find this fruit and its derivatives such as syrups and flour on sale. The feasibility study has sought to evaluate the convenience of producing energy from the carob tree. They wanted to show how the exploitation of energy from biomass residual can make it possible to transform the waste materials in energy products that permit the production of renewable energy from biomass without the use of agricultural land for energy purposes.

Abstract

The present work intends to evaluate the possibility to produce bioethanol through fermentation of the carob. This sustainable process could revive the economy of rural areas of the Mediterranean basin. In particular in Italy, where you can find the largest cultivation of carob in the world. Italy is the leading producer of carob in the world and yet it is difficult to find this fruit and its derivatives such as syrups and flour on sale. The feasibility study has sought to evaluate the convenience of producing energy from the carob tree. They wanted to show how the exploitation of energy from biomass residual can make it possible to transform the waste materials in energy products that permit the production of renewable energy from biomass without the use of agricultural land for energy purposes.
