Secondly, Godavari Biorefineries’ paper titled, ‘Performance Enhancement of Biological Treatment Plan’ authored by Mr. Suryaprakash, GM (Co-gen), was selected for the ‘Best Paper Award in Process’ and was honoured with a Shri Mydur Anand Gold Medal for the same.
The awards were presented during SISSTA’s 51st Annual Convention which was held on 26th August, 2022 at Rahul Convention Centre, Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. More than 600 individuals, including members, mill owners, technocrats, research-institutions, government officials and other dignitaries of the sugar industry participated in the event. The convention comprised the latest research papers of scientific, technological and managerial importance with respect to sugar and its allied industries.

This is a testament to the hard work we have been putting in. We were here last year, as Godavari Biorefineries won the Silver Award for Best Distillery in Karnataka Region at SISSTA’s 50th Annual Convention, and I am certain we will be here next year as well.”
