ITUN Excursion to Südzucker AG in Zeitz
ITUN members, including students, technicians and researchers, attended the excursion to the Südzucker AG plant situated in Zeitz in Germany. On the site we received guided tours through the plant for the refinement of sugar from sugar roots and through the plant for the production of glucose syrup from wheat. Before the tours took place, engineers from Südzucker presented the different plants situated at the site and how the plants are interconnected with respect to energy supply and the efficient exchange and processing of substance flows.
We are grateful to the Südzucker AG for these very interesting and informative presentations and tours.
