Canal Sugar Project - Egypt


  • To be largest beet sugar producer globally
  • To have 36,000 tonnes a day capacity
  • Moves production closer to market
  • To make Egypt self-sufficient.


Dubai's Al Khaleej Sugar Refinery has agreed to participate in the construction of a major agro-industrial complex to produce beet sugar under a land deal signed between Canal Sugar company and the Egyptian government.


The project, named Al Canal Sugar, will be located only about 200 km (125 miles) from its market, Jamal Al-Ghurair, Managing Director of Al Khaleej Sugar Co LLC, told an industry conference in Dubai.

Investment Minister Sahar Nasr said the project, with a cost of around $1 billion, would produce 900,000 tonnes of sugar annually, filling a supply gap in the market and making Egypt self-sufficient in sugar.

Iberica Sugar Project – Spain


  •  Project under study subject to obtention of EU subsidies and project finance. 


Project under consideration contemplates that the project will be located in the capital of Extremadura and have a processing capacity of 1,500 tons of sugar beet an hour (almost 5.5 million tons a year), and 250 tons of brown sugar an hour (900,000 tons a year). This capacity will allow it to obtain up to 240 tons of processed sugar an hour from sugar beet and 245 tons from brown sugar, making a total of over 1.7 million tons a year.

The factory will be built on a 100-Ha plot in the Expacio Mérida industrial park. It will have an office building of 860 square meters distributed over three floors, a limestone warehouse with an area of 2,000 square meters, a general warehouse with 1,620 square meters, a warehouse workshop for maintenance of the same size, and a warehouse for dried pulp of 3,200 with square meters. There will also be a turbine building and a boiler and heat recovery building, with 500 square meters each, and four silos for storing the finished product.

The industrial facility will have its own wastewater purification facilities, and will generate an effluent which –once cleaned– will be sent through a waste collector buried in the Guadiana river, which is 5 km away from the future plant.
