*10 mm Sugar Beet Pulp Pellets (SBPP) and Beet Molasses
** Only Beet Molasses
After we extract the sugar, molasses and beet pulp remain as Co-Products. Molasses is a syrupy product and still contains sugar and other valuable components. After mechanically pressing the beet pulp, we provide it as fresh-pressed pulp or in dried, molassed and pelletised form.
Our Co-products are essential components in various applications. The non-food and fermentation industries use our molasses for the production of yeast, citric acid, potable alcohol or ethanol and other products.
The Molasses we produce is also in demand for the production of vitamins in the pharma industry or for technical applications (e.g. asphalt).
Our Pressed Pulp and SBPP are often used in the non-food industry as a fertile soil for the cultivation of several organisms, or as a component in the paper and cardboard industry.
