Abstract

THE PROJECT INVOLVES THE USE OF A HIGH-PERFORMANCE PRESS TO REDUCE THE WATER CONTENT OF THE BEET PULP TO A MINIMUM, AND A LOW-TEMPERATURE DRYING UNIT USING WASTE HEAT FROM THE SUGAR FACTORY TO DRY THE BEET PULP WITHOUT PRIMARY ENERGY. A SAVING OF 1000 TOE IS EXPECTED FOR AN ANNUAL PRODUCTION OF 5500 TONNES OF DRY PULP. THE MAJOR RISK IN THE PROJECT, WHICH WAS POINTED OUT WHEN THE PROJECT WAS SUBMITTED IN 1981, WAS THE POSSIBILITY OF A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN OIL PRICES WHICH WOULD MAKE THE PROJECT LESS PROFITABLE OR EVEN TOTALLY UNPROFITABLE. THIS RISK NOW FORMS A MAJOR SETBACK TO THE PROJECT.
