Bosch Projects attended and exhibited at the 29th ISSCT (International Society of Sugar Cane Technologists) congress in Thailand from 5 to 8 December 2016. The congress is held every three years in a sugar producing country and it is a key event in the Bosch Projects calendar.
The congress is attended by Clients and suppliers alike from across the globe and as a result, the exposure from the event was exceptional. Thailand was an excellent destination for the congress due to the growing sugar industry in this country, which is supported by the government’s willingness to grant licenses for 25 new sugar factories.
Bosch Projects presented two papers at the congress, which attracted attention from exhibitors and delegates. One paper was on the lamella clarifier (“Performance of lamella clarifiers for juice and syrup clarification”), which is a new development in the sugar industry and has a smaller footprint and lower capital cost than a short retention type clarifier. The second paper was on high efficiency sugar equipment (“Modern sugar factory equipment for good recoveries, energy efficiency and low costs”), such as chainless diffusers, continuous vacuum pans, direct contact heaters, long tube evaporators and sieve plate scrubbers.
The equipment presented in both papers is part of Bosch Projects equipment range. The full Bosch Projects sugar equipment range and our consulting capabilities were exhibited at the stand, which attracted existing and potential new Clients. We look forward to seeing you all at the next ISSCT congress to be held in Argentina in 2019.
