KYIV. Oct 30 (Interfax-Ukraine) – PJSC Hnydavsky Sugar Plant (Lutsk) will invest EUR15 million in modernization of its facilities within five years, according to the company’s website.
According to the report, this year special press units for squeezing pulp, which will allow improving production figures, will be purchased.
“Now pulp contains 12-13% of dry substances, and when the pressing units are installed, the figure will amount to 27%. Special warehouses will be built to storage of this product. It will be dry and won’t contact the environment, so it could be supplied to farmers during the year. On the other hand, pulp will be used for making feed for cattle, as well as for generating energy on the bioreactor,” the report said.
The plant also plans to purchase molecular presses that will allow cleaning sugar production waste and, as a result, receive fertilizers.
“The last stage of the program is the purchase of a special water purification facility that is used to wash sugar beets, after which water will be returned to production,” the company noted.
According to information on the website of the sugar factory, the capacities of the enterprise allow processing 5,000 tonnes of sugar beets per day.
