Connection of the Cristal Union sugar refinery to the natural gas network at Corbeille-en-Gâtinais

 

The Cristal Union sugar refinery at Corbeille-en-Gâtinais, in the Loiret region of France, is now connected to the GRTgaz natural gas network. A pipeline stretching some 11 km was constructed for this purpose between the towns of Pannes and Corbeilles-en-Gâtinais.

This new connection illustrates the advantages of natural gas over alternative energy resources, which offers the advantages of a lessened environmental impact as well as being more competitive economically. The site primarily produces sugar, in addition to some dehydrated products for the livestock feed market.

This new connection illustrates the advantages of natural gas over alternative energy resources, such as heavy fuel oil. It also highlights the value of GRTgaz solutions in supporting the competitiveness of industrial customers and providing them with ever more effective services.

GRTgaz supports its industrial customers in their efforts to use natural gas with optimal efficiency, in both environmental and economic terms.

GRTgaz has also decided to set up Industrial High-Performance Clubs, to provide a forum for exchanges between operators in the same sector (agri-food, glassware, etc.) on common issues.
