Cristal Union: beet campaign continues to be marked by difficult climatic conditions

Cristal Union

The beet season, which is coming to an end, will continue to be marked by difficult climatic conditions, with abundant and continuous rains in the middle of the season, followed by frost and mild spells at the end of the season. However, the average agricultural yield remains within the 5-year average, at more than 86 tonnes of beet at 16° per hectare. Cristal Union's industrial sites have been able to adapt their activities to the constraints of the year. In an average of 115 days of the campaign, industrial activity was carried out successfully, with energy ratios further optimised. Despite the heavy rains, the factories were able to be supplied throughout the season, which lasted from mid-September 2023 to early February 2024, with few slowdowns. During the campaign period, the 8 sugar factories and 2 distilleries produced more than 1.3 million tonnes of sugar and more than 1.6 million hectolitres of alcohol and bioethanol from beets.
