What is Cosun Beet and what is the challenge about?

The Cosun Beet Company’s Anklam site processes sugar beets into white sugar, bioethanol, and biomethane, resulting in various biogenic residues. Approximately 2 million tons of sugar beets are processed each year from September to January, with intermediate products stored and bioethanol and biomethane produced throughout the year.

The goal is to transform the factory into a green biorefinery, offering a diverse product portfolio for different markets. Cosun Beet aims to provide sustainable and climate-friendly products for various purposes by exploring new technologies, solutions, and partnerships to convert the residues into valuable resources. Therefore, Cosun Beet Company is actively searching for providers who can offer innovative concepts, technologies, and equipment to effectively utilize the specified residues.
