  1. Technical regulation - the state of standardization in the sugar industry and novations-2019
  2. GOST 30561-2017 "Beet molasses. Technical conditions", introduced instead of GOST 30561-2013 and coming into effect on July 1, 2018
  3. Section 4 p.4.1.3 table 2 - "physical and chemical indicators" - mass fraction of sucrose in direct polarization,% not less than 43.0% in GOST 30561-2017 "Beet molasses. Technical conditions ", introduced instead of GOST 30561-2013 and coming into effect on July 1, 20184.
  4. The method of determining the sugar content in beets in terms of  its deviations from GOST
  5. In Krasnodar Area during the processing of sugar beet with digestion 14% and below, and also with the maximum extraction of sugar from molasses, it is appropriate to prescribe a reference for sucrose mass fraction by direct polarization,% not less than 40.0%.
  6. Hydrogen indicator: to set a reference for Krasnodar Area for pH as pH 6.0 t– 8.5, because often raw materials processed have zero and negative natural alkalinity.
  7. The possibility to change GOST 3056-2017 in terms of: mass fraction of sucrose at direct polarization,%
  8. When processing raw materials with zero and negative natural alkalinity and to maintain the GOST standard value of molasses pH, in the technological scheme the process of conducting the 2nd saturation is not carried out in optimal conditions (at elevated pH, which does not correspond to the minimum of calcium salts and causes problems evaporating station and when massecuite boiling, over-consumption of descaler per evaporating station, use of TNF).
  9. In section 9 p.9.4 the shelf life of molasses is 9 months from the date of sale. To save as in GOST 30561-2013 –  9 months from the date of production.
  10. Develop and introduce uniform for the sugar industry methods of calculating the consumption of fuel equivalent, limestone.
  11. To develop uniform standards for the consumption of auxiliary materials, since the old regulatory reference book is outdated long ago; modern defoamers, antiseptics, filter elements are used. Modern filtering equipment and filtering materials for filtering juice II saturation providing juice turbidity up to 30 ICUMSA.
  12. Accounting of beets to be  processed (the determined total contamination (TC) on beet weights is not taken into account, moreover the rules for determining TC take into account up to 20% of low-sugar parts of the beet root)
  13. Avoiding residual contents in the pulp of formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide and traces of the antibiotic, methods and available laboratories in Russia able to defineit. How to investigate defoamers, antiscale in the factory laboratories. The impact of pH descaler on the process (in what case it is used at pH 5, and in what at pH 7
  14. Amendment of the technical regulations of the Customs Union 022/2011 “Food products in terms of labeling”. What should be considered in connection with the change.
  15. Calculation of the fuel equivalent for reporting to Soyuzrossahar (includes or not gas consumption for beet pulp drying, heating and other needs)
  16. Accounting and release of beet pulp in sugar factories.
  17. Accounting and reporting on precursors in sugar factories laboratories. Safety of work with precursors. Storage and disposal of precursors. How to follow all the rules before checking.
  18. Moscow University of food production (MGUPP). Professional Standards
  1. Using pulp after deep-pressing presses (return it for drying) - efficiency.
  2. Variants of using molasses for producing by-products (citric acid, yeast, etc.) -the experience of projects implementation.
  3. Draw off syrup into storage - economic efficiency and implemented projects, if any.
  4. Desugarization of molasses (processing of beet molasses, production of an extract, betaine). Molasses desugarization at Znamensky sugar factory.
  5. Control of foaming at all stages of the process, especially in the finish product shiop, inexpensive defoamers for molasses.
  6. PH in the finish product shop:  problem and solution (in many factories this is relevant)
  7. Determination of true purity of the diffusion juice, (big difference with the normal juice and as a result the cleaning effect on carbonation is not visible).
  8. Choosing the optimal scheme of crystallization of the massecuite 1 product (with or without seed massecuite) and the optimal cooking parameters of the massecuite of the 3rd product;
  9. Selection and justification of the optimal parameters of the last product massecuite and the mode of its crystallization, depending on the quality of the processing beet roots with the aim of reducing the molasses quality.
  10. Boiling of massecuites of 1 product with the use of seed massecuite, features of conducting the process of boiling, dosing of seed massecuite for obtaining sugar with a satisfactory coefficient of heterogeneity. Solving the problem of continuous  recirculation of the seed massecuite in emergency situations with minimization of focal deposits in pipelines. Features of boiling massecuite of 1 product with dry substances contect 70-72%
  11. Technological scheme of boiling massecuites I, II, III products on the basis of seed massecuite. (Details of the processes for obtaining the best result of this scheme). Crystallization of the massecuite 3 product by cooling, modern methods, automation algorithm.
  12. Heat resistance of juices. Methods of achieving and determining thermal stability.
  13. The feasibility of adding tri-sodium phosphate. When to start? Optimal points for injection. Adding tri-sodium phosphate solution for lime carbonation depending on natural alkalinity. (Opinions differ: some sources read  that Tri-sodium phosphate to be given under negative natural alkalinity, the others recommend to add it independently of natural alkalinity as early as possible). The optimal points for addindg soda / trisodium phosphate solution (in some sources one of the optimal points for giving soda solution is the maturing tank after 2nd saturation, while the manufacturers of descalers strongly oppose this point of adding)
  14. Measures to reduce turbidity downstream to produce extra-quality white sugar; granulometry of white sugar (types of seed, dosage);
  15. Reducing sugar in molasses;
