Investing to make the most of agricultural raw materials
Processing raw materials requires significant investment in order to reduce processing costs and continuous improvement in terms of processes.
R&D is helping Tereos sites to:
- Make the most of processed raw materials, at the required quality standards (pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, etc.).
- Develop new techniques to ensure procedures for processing raw materials are dramatically improved
- Increase energy production, and reduce consumption and waste
At Origny-Sainte-Benoite, in the world’s largest sugar beet distillery, Tereos and Dupont have joined forces to create the first plant in the world to produce natural betaine.
At Artenay, the world’s first methanization unit to use only sugar beet distillation residues was unveiled on the site of the sugar factory-distillery. The biogas it produces is used in the plant’s boilers, which reduces fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
