Vinasses are repeatedly dried on an absorbent body, such as
lignocellulose until a sufficient concentration has been built up.
This is extracted with alcohol and the residue briquetted and
treated in much the same manner as in the Meunier patents. Br.

Method and apparatus for treating distillery wash. In order to
extract glycerine, succinic acid, and other useful products from
vinasse, the latter is mixed with cellulose (preferably wood
cellulose) which has been completely or partially carbonized with
sulphuric acid, and the mixture is dried and extracted with
suitable solvents, such as crude alcohol, aided by pressure or
osmosis if necessary. The residue left after extraction may be
molded into briquets and burnt, whereby alkaline salts or crude
pearl ash is obtained; or, it may be subjected to dry distillation
to obtain methyl alcohol, acetic acid, and other products. The coke
from the distillation contains oxalic acid and cyanides, and after
extraction of these by lixiviation, the residue may be used as a
fuel or converted into a filtering material. The crude glycerine
may be purified by further treatment with carbonized cellulose.
