SA sugar firm expands in Brazil

by ,

first_img14 July 2008Durban-based sugar equipment and consulting company Bosch Projects has established a subsidiary in Brazil, with the aim of marketing its patented cane diffusion technology to the country’s booming sugar and ethanol sectors.The company’s expansion to Brazil started with the in-house development of equipment using its patented Chainless Diffuser technology, which is applied to an existing sugar extraction process.Bosch Projects do Brasil was established to provide an exclusive technology licensing agreement to Dedini Industrias de Base, the largest equipment supplier to the sugar and ethanol sector in the South American country.The subsidiary’s head office was opened in the city of Piracicaba in Sao Paulo state toward the end of January this year.“Realising that the Brazilian sugar and ethanol sector was experiencing an unprecedented boom, we decided to find a Brazilian partner to whom to sell our new diffuser technology,” Bosch Projects sugar equipment director Ivan Voigt told SAinfo last week.To date, Dedini has taken orders for 10 chainless diffusers including a number of 15-metre diffusers, the largest cane diffusers in the world. Also included in the licensing agreement are Bosch Projects whole stick shredders, rotary juice screens, long-tube evaporators, continuous vacuum pans, direct contact juice heaters, vertical crystallisers and massecuite reheaters.World’s largest sugar cane industryAccording to the company, the Brazilian sugar cane industry is the largest in the world, processing about 500-million tons of cane per annum.The country also produces the most sugar and ethanol in the world, exporting most of both. As such it is attracting huge foreign investment in the cane industry, which is also being spurred on by the growing international trend toward biofuels.In all, it is expected that about 80 new cane processing factories will be built over the next three years.“The Chainless Diffuser technology we make available to our Brazilian partner forms a part of a growing trend in Brazil toward cane diffusers, as opposed to cane crushing mills,” said Voigt.Global ambitionBosch Projects is active in many sugar-producing countries, with partnerships with countries in Brazil, USA and Southeast Asia.The company has also worked as consultants and engineers in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Sudan, Egypt, Central African Republic, Cameroon and Senegal, Hawaii, USA, Mexico, Guyana, Barbados, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and Fiji.“We also offer technical consultancy serves to two prominent British sugar companies,” Voigt added.Engineering News reported last week that Bosch Projects had been appointed by the United Sugar Company Egypt to assist in the erecting and commissioning of a packing plant, as well as handling and storage facilities for packed sugar at a new refined sugar plant situated 170 kilometres to the east of Cairo.In addition, the publication adds that the company is also involved in the expansion of Illovo Sugar’s Dwangwa sugar mill in Malawi.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_imgMan Utd keeper De Gea defends inconsistent form: The odd mistake?by Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has defended his inconsistent form.De Gea came in for some criticism last season, but the goalkeeper – who’s just signed a new contract – says he was happy with his performances.He told Sky Sports: “I think people, when they look back on last season, they are thinking about the last few months.“If you focus on the season as a whole and, in particular, the first seven months of that season I was quite happy with my form.”“You can say the contract is there in the background – it’s not even in the back of your mind – that’s put to one side. The day-to-day training, going out on the pitch, that’s what you’re focusing on – and helping the team, of course.“Talking about the odd mistake, form can come and go with any player, but you are more under the microscope when you’re a goalkeeper. It’s not easy to keep up very high standards.“I’ve been here for a number of years now and to be on top form all the time it’s tough. There are moments when you feel better in yourself form-wise and moments where you’re not quite so good. Mistakes happen, goalkeeper’s live with them and I’m no different.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgBy Tim Fontaine APTN National News WINNIPEG–A donor has been found and Stephen Bunn will receive a liver transplant, his mother Sandy Louise says.The young Brandon Manitoba man made headlines in early 2014 when he was told smudging violated his high school’s scent-free policy. Bunn had been in a Toronto hospital suffering from a mystery illness that caused his liver to fail.Louise says doctors told her early this morning that a donor has been found and that Bunn could be in the operating room this afternoon.“I can’t even describe what I’m feeling right now,” Louise says. “It’s beyond anything, really.”Louise had received a flood of messages on social media, with people from across North America offering prayers and support. Many  also offered to be tested to see if they were a possible match for organ donation.tfontaine@aptn.ca@anishinaboylast_img read more
