Abstract

The present invention relates to a method for producing a slurry suitable for fermenting, a system therefore, and such slurry. The slurry is preferably suitable for storage. The method of the invention comprises the steps of: - providing a slurry of fermentable sugars from an at least one carbohydrate containing agricultural crop and/or residue; - concentrating the slurry of fermentable sugars; - substantially sterilising the concentrated slurry of fermentable sugars; and - providing the sterilised slurry of fermentable sugars to a fermenter, wherein the concentrated and substantially sterilised slurry comprises at least 20 wt% fermentable sugars.
