2nd RESIPE Study Tour in the ethanol and alcohol plant of Cristanol and the sugar factory of Cristal Union in Bazancourt

 

The 2nd RESIPE study tour took place on the 17th of February 2009 in the ethanol & alcohol plant of Cristanol and the sugar factory of Cristal Union, which are located in Bazancourt, France. Cristal Union is a grower-owned cooperatives group, which produces about 18% of the sugar beet acreages in France and focuses on the production of industrial and crystal sugar and the production of alcohol and ethanol, whereas Cristanol is a joint venture of Cristal Union (55% of capital) and Blétanol (union of 25 cereal co-operatives belonging to Champagne Céréales and holding the 45%) dedicated to the production of ethanol and alcohol, from both sugar beet and wheat feedstock.

 

Representatives from Greece, Poland and Sweden had the opportunity to view the facilities and to be informed on Cristanol’s activities in the field of biofuels and other by-products. The study tour was very interesting and informative for the participants since the plants’ directors willingly shared their valuable experience and know-how on ethanol, sugar and other by-products production processes.
