Abstract

Steffens waste is the filtrate from the precipitation of sugar from beet molasses by the addition of lime. The molasses, as it comes from the beet sugar extraction process, contains about 50 per cent sugar, so it is too valuable to be fermented to produce alcohol in this country, although in Europe, much of the beet molasses goes directly to production of alcohol by fermentation.
