Sugar Beet fuels the European bio economy (food, feed, biofuels, biogas, bio products)
Sugar Beet,a model of sustainability
Sugar Beet, a local production which supports rural economy
The EU beet sugar sector has a long tradition of valorising all products arising from the processing of sugar beet, while keeping the use of inputs to an optimum. The Beet Sugar sector thus already applies the principles of the circular economy and waste reduction, anticipating and leading the way towards higher resource efficiency and waste elimination.

CIBE takes part in the AgroCycle project, a Sino-EU collaborative research venture, funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme to create a protocol for the implementation of the 'circular economy' across the agri-food sector.

FOCUS ON BEET
The French Beet Technical Institute ITB (Insitut Technique de la Betterave) explains in a video the importance of mechanical weeding.
The small town of Moyvillers, in the Oise, was, for two days, on the 26th and 27th of October 2016, the capital of the sugar beet industry thanks to Betteravenir 2016, the European sugar beet field exhibition organized by the French Sugar beet Institute (ITB) and the Royal Belgium Institute for Sugar beet (IRBAB).
It will be the opportunity to address two major issues for the sector: the first quota-free campaign and risk management in the context of the future CAP 2020.
