Bioethanol production plant
Investment project with the support of the Finnish state for the production of bioethanol.
Why is bioethanol made of wood?
Development of next generation biofuel is the key to ending dependence on petroleum products and addressing the climate crisis..
Wood industry constantly produces raw wood waste that is looking for innovative solutions.
Ethanol and lignocellulose are highly valued products for local / European markets.
Due to the high prices of plant energy crops, the production of the 2nd generation is the most real path to biofuels in Europe. The project is supported by the State Development Fund TEKES.
Raw material: wood chips, sawdust, wood waste, mostly spruce and pine, as well as birch, annual demand of 100,000 dry tons
bio-ethanol (about 35,000 cubic meters),,
lignin (about 95,000 tons of 58% moisture.),
biogas (about 15 000 tons),
СО2 (about 26.000 tons)
Employment: 35 to 50 full-time employees plus 50 part-time plus external labor (eg Logistics, raw materials processing, etc.)
Environmental aspects: there are no aggressive chemicals in production, the final product is not a combustible fuel.
