The use of sugar beets is no longer limited to the production of sugar. The application of the beets as a substrate in biogas plants is a new domain that is gaining in importance. The biomass logistics for sugar beets from the field to the sugar factory, known as campaigns, has been greatly improved in the recent years. The harvest of beets for sugar production, usually by agricultural wage enterprises, is very powerful and the subsequent logistical steps are well coordinated. To improve the efficiency of the deployment of sugar beet for biogas production new logistics solutions are necessary.
