During the event we will talk about:

The impact of critical impurities on the efficiency of the sugar manufacturing process. Addressing the origin and concentration of these in the process materials, the main effects observed in the sector and some perspectives of the promising mitigation alternatives.


Who is it for:

  • Technical and professional staff of sugar mills.



  • Enlighten attendees in the main critical impurities present in the process materials, effects associated with them and existing mitigation opportunities.



  • Introductory framework: types of impurities, effect of the evolution of the harvest, critical impurities in the sector.
  • State of the Colombian sugar industry in relation to the content of impurities.
  • Effects on the manufacturing process of sugar production.
  • Impacts on the efficiency of crystallization.
  • Alternatives and initiatives for impact mitigation.
