The specially designed logo shows the main objective of our Congress: to contribute with new, significant knowledge to continue improving sugarcane productivity and efficiency in manufacturing current products and also, to speed up development of new products applying innovative technology.
The 3 Xs clearly refer to the thirtieth edition of the ISSCT Congress. Leaning left, the three stalks may be seen, containing the essential colours of sugar cane: water, soil and biomass. Then, leaning right, three leaves complete this concept showing their maturity cycle depicting the plant evolution along the crop, starting with green on the left to yellow-dried leaves on the right, being used for energy production.
The adopted slogan “Growing Energy. The next page“, is also a challenging and relevant step intending to contribute with different energy products obtained –including sugar energy as food– for the growing world population and its permanent demandfor food and energy. We believe that having a long-term vision about this issue is a must. We are confident that with the huge potential of sugar cane powered by the effort of technicians, this Congress will grant the opportunity to contribute with knowledge and ideas, developing new guidelines towards a better and favourable future.
