Advanced biofuels plant to be built in Slovakia

Clariant, a developer of specialty chemicals, and Enviral, Slovakia’s largest bioethanol producer, have announced a license agreement on sunliquid cellulosic ethanol technology. The move will see one of Europe’s first advanced biofuel plants built at the Enviral site in Leopoldov.

Extensive tests were carried out on Enviral’s feedstock and the sunliquid technology at Clariant’s pre-commercial demonstration plant in Straubing, Germany, to ensure effective compatibility. The positive results led to the agreement on the project decision.

Detailed engineering studies will now be carried out in advance of the official ground-breaking on the project which is expected at the end of 2017.
