Does it take a lot of energy to make sugar?

    In order to produce sugar, sugar cane or beets are cultivated, harvested, the juice is extracted and then evaporated and boiled to remove unwanted particles. At this point, the purified sugar juice is crystallized, spun in a centrifugal, and dried. Although the manufacturing process is quite heavy on energy consumption, sugar mills use a byproduct of juice extraction, known as bagasse, as their primary source of fuel. Bagasse is renewable and produces the same amount of CO2 as the sugar cane it is derived from absorbs, making it carbon neutral.
