Our Sugar unit is highly automated to ensure better capacity utilisation and lower process downtimes. We employ robust processes, backed by advanced machinery and trained manpower, to ensure better utilisation of capacities. We emphasize on usage of energy efficient systems, modern technology for better operations and for improved per hectare sugar output, at all our factories. We ensure cost optimisation by achieving better operational parameters. To achieve this we keep a check on and improve steam efficiencies and reduce process losses at our units for better recovery of sugar. In our factory, double sulphitation process is followed for sugar. The sugar produced at our plant is direct consumption plantation white, low ICUMSA (an International method for determining colour value of sugar, lower value means whiter sugar), bold grain sugar which commands premium in the market. Significant emphasis is put the quality control procedures and quality assurance of sugar produced in our factory. Time to time training of the staff and semindars conducted by us helps continually improve our product cost and quality.
Cogeneration means simultaneous production of two useful forms of the energy (in our case electricity & steam). Bagasse being readily available fuel from the sugar factory operations, Co-generation offers additional revenue stream to the sugar unit and provides much needed de-risking from the cyclicality of the sugar busin ABSL currently operates 33 MW (10 MW + 23 MW) grid connected co-generation capacity. Company’s Dasuya unit is also registered as Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) project under CERC's REC program. Bagasse, being a renewable fuel, adds no net carbon dioxide in atmosphere and therefore bagasse based co-generation plants are regarded as environment friendly, green fuel based plants.
A.B.Sugars (Distillery unit) is a molasses based 60 KL per day Capacity distillery in Punjab, located in same premises of sugar unit. The distillery is located on Hoshiarpur to Dasuya road and using total molasses of sugar unit. The distillery has a flexible manufacturing process allowing it to produce Extra Neutral Alcohol (ENA), Rectified Spirit (RS), Special Denatured Spirit (SDS) & Ethanol which are renowned for their high quality. The company has also installed latest technology of effluent handling, MEE followed by incinerated boiler.
