The most efficient means of complete utilization of starch is the combined conversion of potatoes to starch and alcohol. The organization of starch departments in alcohol plants and the combined conversion of potatoes to starch and alcohol raise the starch utilization factor to 96%. Combined processing of potatoes significantly reduces the cost price of alcohol and starch and eliminates the harmful effect of cell juice in the production of starch to be used in the alcohol plant as a nutrient medium for yeast. In the new season 5 plants of the Economic Council of the Belorussian SSSR will be converted to combined potato processing, at least 30% by the end of the seven-year period.
