Anti-solvent crystallization for local sugar production: Demonstration plant bij YPSS Engineering at the Wageningen University Campus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


At the beginning of the twentieth century there were more than 30 Sugar factories. Now there remain only two, one in Groningen (Hoogkerk) and the other in Noord-Brabant (Dinteloord). This means that beets must be transported over long distances. Transport costs make up about 50% of the total expenses of the beet refining process, even though transport has been optimized extensively. With the expected rise of energy prices, centralized processing will become significantly more expensive.
