The parent company of Domino Sugar, whose iconic sign lights up at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, said Thursday it completed its acquisition of Tate & Lyle PLC's European sugar refining business. American Sugar Refining Inc., which owns the Baltimore sugar refinery, announced the $314 million deal in July. Under the transaction, ASR bought cane sugar refineries in London and Lisbon as well as the license to use the Tate & Lyle sugar brand. American Sugar Refining markets its products under the Domino, C&H and Redpath brands.

Think sunshine - not just sweetness - when you see the Domino Sugars sign lighting up the Inner Harbor at night. Solar panels have been installed on a rooftop at the sugar refinery off Key Highway to illuminate the neon fixture that's long been a landmark of the Baltimore skyline. The photovoltaic array is part of a push by Domino and its corporate parent, Florida-based ASR Group, to make the world's leading producer of cane sugar a little greener. With the $125,000 solar installation and other moves, "we hope to show Baltimore every day that sustainability is top-of-mind here and at our facilities across the globe," said Peter O'Malley, ASR Group's vice president of corporate relations.

Water gushes over Domino Sugar's packaging building, washing off grit, fly ash and other gunk - so much of it that the cleaned-up facade is a noticeably lighter shade of brown. The building had plenty of time to collect whatever the weather and long-gone industry threw its way. It's the first time Domino cleaned it in the 25 years refinery manager Stu FitzGibbon has been there, and it's possibly a first since the plant opened in 1922. Domino spent decades focusing its spending on the inner workings of its 25-building Baltimore complex - the parts with a direct impact on refining and transporting sugar.

Men and women wearing hairnets, hard hats, safety glasses and bright-orange vests wended their way through Domino Sugars' Baltimore refinery Tuesday - there to look, not work. The manufacturing engineers and engineering students toured Domino as part of an international conference in town this week, a chance for boosters to get people thinking of Baltimore-area manufacturing in present and future tense rather than past. The Society of Manufacturing Engineers says new-wave manufacturing - 3-D printing, specifically - is one reason officials decided to meet in Baltimore this year.

Some of Baltimore's best-known candy makers are pressing Congress to overturn a decades-old sugar policy they say is leaving a bad taste in their mouth. Goetze's Candy Co., Wockenfuss Candies and others want lawmakers to rethink long-standing restrictions on foreign sugar imports that they argue are inflating the cost of making caramels, toffees and chocolates. The debate between the sugar industry - including the ASR Group, which owns Baltimore's Domino Sugar plant - and confectioners and others who buy sugar by the truckload is expected to come to a head this week in the Senate.

The Baltimore skyline is iconic: The National Aquarium's blue waves and the World Trade Center's five-sided building have been depicted in places as varied as Robert McClintock paintings and local body art. The Domino Sugar sign is - well, it's the Domino Sugar sign. It's priceless. Exelon Corp.'s Baltimore office, proposed to be built on the old Allied Chemical site in Harbor Point, would alter that skyline forever. In that context, it too needs to be iconic. The proposed office building has been treated by the mayor's office as simply a necessity of the Exelon merger with Constellation Energy.

The largest load of sugar ever delivered to Domino Sugar's Baltimore refinery arrives aboard a ship on Monday. The Domino Sugars refinery will make history Monday morning when it is scheduled to receive the largest single raw sugar shipment ever to a port east of the Mississippi River, the company announced. More than 95 million pounds of raw sugar from Guatemala will be unloaded from the 623-foot bulk carrier Simon Schulte, more than 100 feet longer than the cargo ships that usually deliver sugar to the refinery.
