Sugar and its main by-products - beet pulp and molasses - being used for direct consumption
and also in the food & drink industry and production of animal feed, are of strategic importance
to human nutrition. Moving away from strict protection of the EU sugar market, the EC tends to
reduce sugar price and admit sugar imports from least developed countries. To satisfy consumer
needs in a sustainable manner at changed market conditions, new ideas on production technology,
engineering & management are needed for the restructuring of the sugar sector which is of major
importance to the EU economy.
TOSSIE is a joint effort of a consortium composed of eight European partners. Among them are
four higher educational institutions and four industrial companies.
During the period May 2006 to May 2008, TOSSIE partners have created a forum of information exchange and discussion aimed at evaluating the chances for sustainable development of EU sugar sector and identifying its needs for future research in problem areas covered by the relevant European Technology Platforms. Summaries of discussions are given in four issues of TOSSIE Newsletter (for downloading, see below). Registered users of this website can access presentations delivered at project workshops and various project documents including the Final Activity Report (see Downloads).
