  • Round baling of sugar beet pulp - Case study

    This is a case study of how the Flexus heavy duty round baling system is implemented at the sugar beet processing facility in Aarberg, Switzerland. Schweizer Zucker AG is baling around 30.000 tons of sugar beet pulp during the period of october to the end of the year. To meet demands and cover a wider range of usage, some of the beet pulp is baled during night time when normal transport and ...

  • Sugar Beet Pulp - Case Study

    Baling of Beet Pulp Sugar beet pulp is a vegetable residue from the production of sugar. The material has a high nutritional value and is a popular feed supplement for livestock. Dairy farmers consider beet pulp to be a highly palatable and absorptive feedstock that helps stimulate milk production. However, due to the high moisture content, fresh beet pulp has a very short ...

  • Ethanol from sugar beet in The Netherlands: energy production and efficiency

    Prospects for ethanol production from sugar beet in The Netherlands have been analysed using measured production data from two experimental farms and literature on beet to ethanol conversion. The analyses include beet cultivation and harvesting, transport to the factory, conversion into ethanol and delivery of the ethanol to distribution points. Under the prevailing conditions, ethanol production ...

  • Optimisation of lactic acid fermentation from beet molasses by strain FD173

    Beet molasses was used to produce lactic acid in this study. Effects of initial sugar concentration in beet molasses, inoculation of lactic acid bacteria, yeast extract concentration, temperature and time of fermentation on lactic acid generation were investigated. Orthogonal regress experiment design was adopted based on the single factor experimental results. Corresponding mathematical model ...

  • Land application of sugar beet by-products: effects on Nitrogen mineralization and crop yields

    Land application of food processing wastes has become an acceptable practice because of the nutrient value of the wastes and potential cost savings in their disposal. Spoiled beets and pulp are among the main by-products generated by the sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) processing industry. Farmers commonly land apply these by-products at rates >224 Mg ha–1 on a fresh weight basis. However, ...

  • Comparative mycotoxin profiles of gibberella zeae populations from barley, wheat, potatoes, and sugar beets

    Gibberella zeae is one of the most devastating pathogens of barley and wheat in the United States. The fungus also infects noncereal crops, such as potatoes and sugar beets, and the genetic relationships among barley, wheat, potato, and sugar beet isolates indicate high levels of similarity. However, little is known about ...

  • Rural Area Management

    The topic “rural area management” is inseparably connected with the future development of our environment. The cultivation of fields, pastures or forests has direct effect on food and feed, on bio-energy but also on Earth’s land, water, atmosphere and biological resources. To meet all these challenges, multi-class collaborations supported by an increased use of advanced ICT-technologies and tools ...

  • Sugar Syrup Disinfection – Spain and New Zealand

    Hanovia Sugar Syrup UV Systems Background Liquid Sweeteners are produced from sugar beet, sugar cane, corn, starch and artificial substances. These sweeteners are added to final products throughout the Beverage and Food industries, and therefore must be treated to comply with all global regulations for product hygiene. The common methods used for ensuring microbiological quality of ...

  • Biomethanol From Sugar Beet Pulp

    According to Atlantic Biomass Conversions, sugar beet pulp, currently of low value to sugar beet growers and processors, could become a significant source of renewable fuel methanol. Nearly 700 million liters of fuel cell quality methanol could be produced annually from sugar beet pulp produced by existing EU and US sugar beet refineries. Atlantic Biomass Conversions, a company based in ...
