Groundbreaking for #Clariant’s #Sunliquid #cellulosicethanol plant in Romania https://t.co/liPDR3oOFz

Clariant has begun construction of the first large-scale commercial Sunliquid plant for the production of cellulosic ethanol made from agricultural residues in Podari near Craiova in southwestern Romania. At the flagship facility, the Sunliquid technology developed by the company is being used on an industrial scale for the first time. At full capacity, the plant will process around 250,000 tons of wheat and other cereal straw sourced from local farmers to 50,000 tons (~16.7 million gallons US) of cellulosic ethanol annually. By-products from the process will be used for the generation of renewable energy with the goal of making the plant independent from fossil energy sources. The resulting cellulosic ethanol is therefore an advanced biofuel that is practically carbon-neutral. The flagship plant testifies to the competitive viability and sustainability of the sunliquid te...
