Klein Wanzleben Beet Sugar Factory

Klein Wanzleben factory of Nordzucker AG, located 130 km west of Berlin, was errected between 1992 and 1994 as part of the reorganization of the sugar industry after the German reunification. The factory is one of the most modern sugar factories in Europe.

The factory symbolizes Nordzucker’s philosophy from a technical perspective and continues to set standards in terms of its design and technology. Since 2007, the factory operates a bioethanol production facility with beet raw juice and beet thick juice as raw material.

The factory slices nearly 15,000 t/d of beet. It operates among others a thick juice storage, two tower extractors, a six effect falling film evaporator station and three BMA VKTs. It produces only white sugar according to the EU quality standards. At the time of construction, it operated a vapor recompression plant. Currently investments are carried out to reduce the CO2 emissions by 50 % in 2030, based on the average for the years 2017–2019.

The first sugar factory began operating in 1838 in Klein Wanzleben and marks the founding year of the present Nordzucker AG.
