The XXI Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union posed the task of complete utilization of raw resources and sharp reduction of the consumption of foodstuffs in the production of ethyl alcohol. Potatoes in industry are primarily used in two branches - starch and alcohol (the vegetable drying industry requires only a small amount). The combined conversion of potatoes into starch and alcohol has been of concern in the USSR since 1930-1935. These works are also now being conducted. Two variants can be used in the combined conversion of potatoes to starch and alcohol: the organization in starch plants of departments to produce alcohol from residual starch in middlings and discarded cell juice, and the organization in alcohol plants of departments to produce raw starch and further process starch waste into alcohol in continuous distillation units.
