Manufacturing processes & Wastewater characteristics for Sugar industries

Manufacturing processes & Wastewater characteristics for Sugar industries
The process of manufacturing sugar involves the following processes:
  1. Growing and harvesting cane
  2. Cane preparation for milling
  3. Milling
  4. Clarification
  5. Evaporation
  6. Crystallization
  7. Centrifugation
  8. Drying
  9. Refining
Beet sugar processing is similar except that it is done in one continuous process. Sugar beets are washed, sliced and soaked in hot water to separate the sugar containing juice from the beet fiber. The sugar laden juice is then purified, filtered, concentrated and dried in a series of steps similar to cane sugar processing. The process flowcharts are shown below:
