Starch factory – Questions and Answers (9)

Potato protein process line, starch factory

Question:

Does it make sense to install a potato protein line for a starch factory turning out 1,500 tons of starch per campaign?

Answer:

For the current starch factory productivity, the amount of the resulting protein will only reach about 50 kg/h, which will give an annual revenue from the protein sale no more than 100,000 Euros. A simple installation is estimated to cost about 500,000 to 600,000 Euros. If such cost of the installations is acceptable, we can prepare an offer. We are also ready to modernize the starch factory in order to improve the performance and technical and economical parameters.
