Sugar beet Ethanol

Sugar beet is a more versatile crop than sugar cane since it can tolerate a wider range of soil and climatic conditions. Once processed in a sugar plant, beet molasses are generated in large volumes from the sucrose recovery operation and can be fed to the ethanol production unit.

Complete Sugar Beet processes proposed by DSEC generally include:

  • Washing
  • Mashing / Clarification / Extraction
  • Evaporation
  • Fermentation with standard yeast (batch or continuous)
  • Distillation
  • Rectification (if applicable)
  • Ethanol dehydration (molecular sieve)
  • Vinasses treatment
