In 2016, a desugarization station was launched at the Znamensky sugar plant. Here, an extract is produced from molasses from three sugar factories in the Tambov region for the subsequent production of sugar from it. The implementation of the project became the second example of the implementation of this technology in Russia.
By the beginning of 2017, all the main elements of this program were implemented in the sugar business. As a result of the processing of sugar beets at the Rusagro sugar factories, two main by-products were produced, i.e. pulp and molasses. The pulp is sold to third parties, while the molasses is used for additional sugar production and betaine release. In 2017, the first molasses desugarization station was launched
Today, all Rusagro sugar factories are working on an improvement program. By the beginning of 2017, all the main elements of this program were implemented in the sugar business.
