High performance decolorants and color precipitants for VHP sugar production [Full subscriber]

Abstract There is renewed interest in the sugarcane sugar sector to produce a high quality raw grade sugar or plantation white sugar at a sugar factory. This is motivated by the need for increased factory revenue and the fact that refining costs are directly associated with raw sugar quality. In addition, sugar refiners have raised their standards for raw sugar pol values and color to approach those for HP (high polarization) and VHP (very high polarization) sugars. With reference to case studies at laboratories and sugarcane factories in Central and South America, this paper highlights the use of High Performance…
