In order to produce sugar, lime milk was needed to purify the beet juice. To obtain this, calcium-rich limestone was used on the CSM site. The lime kiln was lit three days before the beet harvest started and heated to up to 1,200 °C to burn the limestone, after which it could be further processed.
The former lime kiln will be used in its new form as an advertising tower, where you can see at a glance what you can do and experience at SugarCity. Together with the two 50 metre-tall SugarCity silos, the Advertising Tower is one of SugarCity’s eye-catchers.
