INEOS bio.pngThe blog is delighted to see that Ineos is to build its first European BioEnergy Process Technology plant at Teesside, UK.
The £52m ($75m) plant will produce 30m litres (24 million tonnes) of bioethanol, and 3MW of electricity on start-up in 2012. It will fuel 250k autos running on E10 blend, and provide electricity for 6000 homes.
Feedstock will be c100KT of biodegradable household/commercial waste.
This is one of the first investments under the UK government’s £60m scheme to equip Teesside to become a centre of low carbon technology. It is excellent to see the process engineering skills of the chemical industry being used to develop the technologies of the future.
