Lantmännen Agroetanol - Ethanol factory

CTCN
Objective:
Opportunities enabled:
Technology:
Country:
Sweden
Maturity:

Ethanol can be produced from most raw ingredients that contain sugar or starch, which can in turn be broken down to sugar. In the Norrköping factory wheat, rye and barley are used as raw ingredients. Around 550,000 tonnes of grain are required to produce 210,000 m3 of ethanol. With a yield of 5.5 tonnes per hectare for wheat/triticale in Central Sweden, the factory's capacity is equivalent to a plantation of 100,000 hectares.
