My Mum says: “Sugar beets were taken to refinery at Babin, not far from Równe. “ This was without giving her your Dad’s suggestion so it must be right.
It still exists, east of Rowne, 18 km sounds about right too.

Subject: [Kresy-Siberia] sugar refinery around Rowne
my father today discovered that an elderly Polish woman living near my
grandmother was from Wol~yn and in having only a short time to converse
managed to get from the woman she was 18 km from Rowne in a place where
there was a sugar refinery. My grandfather often took his sugarbeets to
Babin from their town of Hallerowo but my father was not sure the
distance of Babin from Rowne and if this was only a transfer station or
if Babin had a refinery( thus possibly being her home town). He will
visit the lady in a few days time but asked if I might get help to
pinpoint where she was from and info about the refinery.
