There are still large differences in process steam consumption, sugar recovery and plant availability when comparing sugar production from beet versus that from cane on a global scale. These are partly due to higher sugar contents and purities of sugar beet, but also due to more developed process technologies enabling a more efficient usage of steam and energy. Specific areas of a cane factory that can benefit from adaption technologies typically employed in European beet sugar production are: heat-transfer equipment especially evaporators and condensers, sugar-house work including seed magma systems by cooling and improved crystallizer designs, close monitoring . . .
