Gen. II. Fnirchild, chairman of
llie Coiniitittc" 011 tlif Utilization of
By-1'roducts, tend it report before
ttic Planters Asscciation meeting
from which the following nre ex
tracts: We consider the by-prod nets
upon a plantation to include waste
molasses, stable manure, bagasse,'
press cakes, ashes, cane tops, etc.,
left in the fields after harvesting,
and will consider each in order in
Waste Molasses This by-pro
duct, while still a "waste product"
upon some plantations, is rapidly
becoming a valuable commodity,
and the main point to be considered
is "Are we getting the best results
from it considered from a financial
standpoint." Some plantations are
feeding it to their working stock at
the rate of from 3 to 15 pounds per
day, others arc burning it in their
furnaces mixed with the bagasse,
or by means of the Anderson or
other atomizing burner and in some
instances it is being applied directly
to the soil as a fertilizer. Asa feed
for mules or stock there is no longer
any question about its being a val
uable and harmless feed.
Assuming that a io.ooo-ton plan
tation requires 150 head of mules
or horses, and that each mule will
eat a gallon of molasses a day, then
during the year 54.75 gallons of
waste molasses will be used as feed.
Ordinarily not less than 25 U. S.
gallons of molasses arc produced for
each ton of sugar made in a well
equipped factory, or 250,000 gallons
per year from a 10,000-ton factory;
of this hardly a fourth would be
consumed as feed by the working
stock. If it is not practicable to
feed all of the molasses (and it is
most valuable as a feed as we will
show later on), the next best
scheme is to burn it in the furnaces,
and we believe the best results are
obtained when the molasses is finely
atomized and combustion takes
place before the potash in the mo
lasses can combine with the silica
in the trash and form a mass of
clinker and glass that will clog the
Results at Ewa, McBryde, Maui
Agricultural and the ,Makee Sugar
Co.'s plantations prove that mo
lasses has a fuel value relative to
coal in the ratio of about one to
four; 250,000 gallons of molasses
will weigh about 1,625 tons and its
fuel value would be equal to, say,
406 tons of coal, worth say $4,000;
after burning the molasses the
valuable by-product potash is left.
Authorities claim that 35 per cent,
of average waste molasses ash is
potash; 1,625 tons of molasses will
yield 9 per cent, of its weight in
ash or, say, 146 tons of ash, and
35 per cent, of this is potash in car
bonate form; 51 tons of potash is
worth about $100 a ton, or say
From the foregoing we find that
the waste molasses from a 10,000
ton plantation when burned iu the
furnaces is worth as fuel and
fertilizer about $9,000. Are we
getting this from it?
We will now consider the value
of waste molasses as a food for
stock. On the Makee Sugar Co.'s
plantation since the first of this
year they have fed their working
stock at the rate of from 10 to 15
pounds of molasses per day and
! have reduced the amount of grain
J from 1 6 and 1 8 pounds to ( and 8

i ported a saving iu feed by the use
of a molasses ration amounting to

I If the foregoing report has
I succeeded in doing nothing more
I than convince the members of this
Association of the value of mo
lasses as a food for stock, or as a
fuel for the furnaces, we will feel
that it has been worth submitting.
We claim to have produced nothing
new or original, but have brought
home to the Islands the proofs of
the value of this product as a food
'and fuel by carefully conducted
I experiments upon our own live
stock and in our own furnaces.
I If the feeding of molasses will re

per month for the 7,000 mules em

The proper preservation and ap

from these animals should be worth

counting the potash fed with the
molasses mill recovered iu the

The value of the 65,000 tons of
waste molasses produced each year
is worth for potash aloneover$i6o,
000.00, and its fuel value in addi
tion is worth $150,000.00.
If we could sell it all to livestock
ranches, etc., at only five cents a
gallon (its value in Louisiana as a
a food for stock), it would be worth
$500000.00 as food, and its potash
saved in the manure or compost
heap another $160,000.00.
