Ethanol Europe’s parent company has changed its name to Clonbio Group Ltd, www.clonbio.com. Our sister company Pannonia Bio, www.pannoniabio.com, has also changed its name. Ethanol Europe will continue to advocate on policy issues impacting the corn ethanol industry. A new Ethanol Europe website is being developed and will go online in the new year.
Our mission is to advance the bioeconomy in ways that benefit the global climate and rural communities at the same time.
We are dedicated to supplying verified sustainable bio-products into European markets. The energy and material products that we sell displace oil-derived fuels and plastics.
The nutrition products that we bring to market displace feed that is GMO, laced with antibiotics or otherwise poses risks to the human food chain.
Ethanol Europe hopes that by 2020, Europe:
- displaces close to 10% of its transport sector energy with sustainable biofuels, made from feedstock originating from European farms;
- begins the process of replacing fossil plastics and chemicals with bio-based alternatives, made from value chains that start and end in Europe; and
- starts to facilitate incentives for European farmers to invest in sustainable intensification of their farms and rural communities in order to reverse the rural decline that has typified much of the European landscape over the past two decades.
Pannonia Bio, located in Dunafoldvar, Hungary, is the largest ethanol production facility in Europe, every year producing 450 million litres of ethanol, 350 thousand tons of DDGS, and 15 thousand tons of corn oil. Supporting over 2000 rural jobs in Hungary, Pannonia’s ethanol every year achieves larger and larger GHG savings, while EU-produced ethanol in general already achieves on average more than 60% savings.
For every ton of ethanol produced by Pannonia, one ton of Pannonia Gold DDGS is also produced. This GMO free, anti-biotic free high protein feed is essential for reducing Europe’s chronic protein deficit.
Heat stressed and sick animals that refuse to eat lead to heavy financial losses every year in the poultry industry, and this is a major cause for the overuse of antibiotic supplements in animal feed. Our biobased alternative leads to healthier animals and is facilitating efforts to curb antibiotic use in the food chain.
Ethanol Europe is the sponsor of Pelagonia Ethanol, which would be Europe’s most ambitious cellulosic biorefinery. Located in Macedonia, Pelagonia would revitalize rural communities that are being abandoned and provide 1000 direct jobs. This investment is now suspended due to the inability of the European Commission to introduce a regulatory scheme that makes investing in cellulosic ethanol in Europe possible.
Ethanol Europe is bringing new products and new investments to market in 2017. Stay tuned.
ForEthanol.EU has been established to inform policy makers, media and interested citizens on the benefits of biofuels to the environment and the EU economy.
ForEthanol.EU has access to high levels of expertise on industry matters and draws on this in advocating industry interests. The debate on biofuels is not always balanced and the site also addresses uninformed and misleading information. ForEthanol.EU supports policymakers in the EU and its member states who advocate a stable policy framework for renewable fuels in transport that is conducive to jobs, growth and sustainable biofuel production in Europe.
Agro Inno Show
Agro Inno Show is the first event in a series held in one of the centers of agricultural production in Hungary to demonstrate the innovation potential in crop production and show that it can grow sustainably.
Our aim is to share knowledge and experience of the latest technologies of sustainable crop production available on the market. Hopefully, participants may have been inspired to invest in sustainable intensification of crop production technologies.
