Beet and Cane Sugar Manufacture

by Peter van der Poel, Hubert Schiweck, Tom Schwartz

The handbook presents the beet and cane sugar manufacture. The parameters influencing the economic value and the possible uses of the main product, sugar, as well as the by-products, pulp, bagasse and molasses, have been given special attention. The functional properties of sucrose in foods are discussed in detail.
Ninety-two specialists from around the world agreed to participate in this project.

Based on the chemical and physical properties of sucrose and the composition of sugar beet and sugar cane the individual process steps of sugar manufacture are described.
This handbook therefore has the following objectives:

  • to provide a tool for factory managements in day-to-day decisions
  • to help management in long-term planning
  • to focus on practical aspects

Sugar Technologists Manual

by Z. Bubnik, P. Kadlec, D. Urban, M. Bruhns

The Sugar Technologists Manual, formerly Zuckertechniker Taschenbuch, provides you with all available data on

  • Crystalline sucrose
  • Pure sucrose solutions
  • Technical sugar solutions
  • Mono-, di- and oligosaccharides.

Wherever necessary for practical work the  relevant algorithm is given.

The physical properties of steam and water as well as methods for calculating steam losses will help you to optimize the heat economy of a factory. The collection of sugar technological formulas will make your process control easier.

Sugar Economy

A MUST FOR EVERY SUGAR AND SWEETENER EXECUTIVE.

The “Blue Bible” is divided into 3 parts:

  • Statistics (World sugar production and consumption, EU, German and French production, sugar trade, beet area etc.)
  • The addresses of sugar, starch and ethanol producers, traders, organisations, and institutes in Europe and North America
  • The EU sugar market regulation, in both the complete version and in summary.

Good Management Practices for the Cane Sugar Industry

offers contemporary guidelines for good management practices in the cultivation of sugarcane and production of cane sugar and ethanol. This fine book is an ideal resource for agronomists, soil scientists, extension agents, sugar technologists, engineers, consultants, human-resource personnel and specialists in the fields of teaching and technical assistance.

The book’s twenty-one chapters are organized into three sections: Fourteen chapters cover topics in agricultural management ranging from crop establishment to harvesting. Three chapters are devoted to topics having to do with processing, co-product and effluent management. Four chapters cover social development, community and outgrower topics.

Wherever possible, the authors of Good Management Practices have adopted the values of sustainability, ensuring that any recommended management practices comply with the tenets of today’s triple bottom line:

  • Ensuring profitable production while maintaining and improving production resources;
  • Minimizing or avoiding detrimental impacts to the environment, both on- and off-site; and
  • Ensuring that production takes place in a socially equitable environment.
